The Queen Elizabeth II Rose, and a storm last night
The Queen Elizabeth II was the first Grandiflora rose of them all. It was developed in the very early 1950's. Perfected in 1952 and named for Queen Elizabeth II on June 2nd 1953, on her Coronation. It is considered the best rose ever and has the highest rating of any rose. It truly deserves it.
We are having a huge rain storm to-day and I went out in it to get the pictures.
