Hot Cocoa

The garden is blooming all over right now, but this rose is one of the most unusual ones I grow. It is called “Hot Cocoa”, and I just love the color, which is pretty much the color of the trim on my house and the color of my garage door. This photo actually makes it look a bit pinkish, but it is actually a deep dark burgundy color. There is something about deep, saturated colors that really appeals to me.
