If I was out buying roses and they offered me some that looked like that I wouldnt want to buy them.

Lovely rose John....the red rose of Lancashire. Lancashire day is November 27th....wear a rose and be proud of Lancashire.

Beautiful rose & I bet the scent is lovely.
Mick if you were out buying roses you wouldn't get one like that...you would get a florist's rose grown in countries like Israel, Italy or Columbia.
That rose is an English Rose...the best.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 3rd November 2011 at 16:00
well done, one of my favorites, the Lancashire red rose, even though we're Greater Manchester. Well done John. (I still write Lancashire on my address Letters)


Comment by Brian on 3rd November 2011 at 18:07
Take heart Colin, Greater Manchester County ceased to exist in 1986. You never left Lancashire and to put LANCASHIRE on your letters is correct providing you include the postcode..
No legislation has ever been introduced to alter the traditional county boundaries! Manchester is in Lancashire!!!!!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 3rd November 2011 at 22:21
Beautiful rose like that ...and its November !!


Comment by Shirl on 3rd November 2011 at 22:34
There's always something very striking about rich reds and greens together. What a beauty! Lovely shot again John.


Comment by Mick on 3rd November 2011 at 23:00
If this Lancashire Red Rose as come from a shop then it will have been air flown from China because China is now the Rose growing capital of the world.


Comment by Gerald Pilkington Canada on 3rd November 2011 at 23:04
Have a boat in Canada, that is named the Lancashire Rose, and yes a picture of the rose in the middle, for all to see.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 4th November 2011 at 10:29
Thankyou Brian, sounds good to me!


Comment by Helen on 4th November 2011 at 14:08
My goodness Mick, you are the fount of all knowledge...things must have moved on a pace since I was in the business of knowing where roses were shipped from !

Great pic John...I have it on my desktop now to cheer me everyday...thanks.
