You may have experienced a double scooped ice cream cone or a ride on a double-decker bus or Doublemint chewing gum. I am wondering if you have experienced a Double Delight in your workplace or at home? Do I mean something that is a double bonus? That is exactly what I mean: twice the joy, expectedly!
This morning, I notice a red object nestled in a Maiden Grass in my perennial garden. When I walked over and discovered it was a small leaf my eyes were drawn to something unexpected… a lovely blossom on my Double Delight rose bush! What an unexpected surprise! The bush had not bloomed all summer and I thought the leaves were from a “sucker.” I was joyfully mistaken!
Last year, my last Double Delight rose bush, which I had planted 27 years died. I replaced that bush with two new bushes. This Spring only survived the winter. When I saw the “sucker” on the surviving bush gave it rose food and water. When it did not produce blossoms all summer, I did not expect any blossoms in October.
My Blue Gardener’s Brain is thrilled by the early morning blossom, which is twice the joy I had ever expected!
My rose is a Double Delight because the pedals are a creamy vanilla color, which are exquisitely tipped with a breathtaking soft shade of fuchsia, and the fragrance is sweet and long lasting.
I gleefully and correctly cut the blossom on an angle above a 5 leaflet leaf. I brought my little treasure into the house and placed it in one of my favorite bud vases, which I placed on my desk!
