Harry Who? - Open Slather

No, this is not a post about up to the minute fashion and edgy style(sorry to disappoint). That's just not me.

It's a post about a rose, named in 1972 (which is kinda cool, coz that's the year I was born), after Harry Wheatcroft. Harry who?!!

Harry Wheatcroft(1898-1977) was a flamboyant, famous english rose grower. I love this rose, it's one of the first roses that flowers every year in my garden, I kind of have a soft spot for it. That's just me.
