As we strolled around the wooded area of Doddington Place gardens, near Sittingbourne Kent on Sunday I couldn’t believe that this rose was in full bloom. The black and white version of this photo can be viewed on our Monochrome Magic blog

I am an amateur photographer, blogger and digital artist as well as being the female half of RyanPhotography. We both have a keen interest in landscape and floral photography. And we live in Kent, also known as the Garden of England, in the United Kingdom. We both have a desire to travel and hopefully one day move to somewhere where it is picturesque and a photographer's delight.


what a beauty! Looks nearly like a camelia. Seems to be very rare this kind of rose. Have never seen it.

You are correct, it is called a Camelia ‘April Rose’…. the leaves of it looked exactly like rose leaves, that is why I thought it was an early blooming rose…

I just love comments... Thanks for stopping by...
