Return Of the swamp rose


The swamp rose is back and better than ever. It’s about four feet by four feet now, covered with panicles of 2.5″ semi-double lavender -pink blossoms that the light shines through.

And the fragrance scents the entire yard. It’s a small yard, true. But it smells like heaven.

“Not heavy
Not sensuous
But perilous
Perilous. . . .”

H. D. “At Baia”
