Eclipse Hybird Tea Rose-01 by hummingbird88 Eclipse Hybird Tea Rose-01 by hummingbird88
"I do not Edit or Crop any of my photos".

This rose is called Eclipse, but i like to call it The Yellow Rose of Texas". It's noted for it's extremely long tapered buds. Clear yellow blooms, vigorous, dependable bush and the rose becomes almost white much later, when it's done blooming.
Introduced in the United States by Jacson & Perkins Co. (Newark, NY) in 1935.
The name "Eclipse" fist bloomed on the day of a solar eclipse on August 31, 1932, hence it's name.

This rose bush is between 2 of my other rose bushes that grow to my roof top, it's in my front yard infront of a bedroom window and it sure was hard for me to get by that wall just to take this photo.
I use to have over 100 rose bushes but gave some away and did plant them for my family & friends.
I use to go vist my grandma about every other day and take her roses, she would ask for one of my one of my family female members that she reared and all i would say is that the roses came from her. The day at the age of 92 years old my grandma asked for me and said that i always knew all those roses came from you and not by any other family members, because nobody in the family but you knows how to grow & plant things. I wanted to cry so much because my grandma never liked me and never allowed me in her home, but at the end as she was ready to pass away she showed me so much love. She thanked me for always taking her to all the doctor appointments and for telling her daughter my mum/mom to get her out of bed and for asking her what would you like to eat today and i'll cook it for you.
All my roses that i'm highly allergic to was planted in the memory of my grandpa & grandma, due to how much my grandma loved roses and had so many of them.
I want to thank my hero & mentor my grandpa for teaching me how to plant anything & work on cars/trucks at such a young age, may you & grandma R.I.P.
With My Love,
Ms. P. :heart:
