Bloom of the Day

Jude the Obscure

An English Rose with exceptionally beautiful flowers. Loosely double blooms, in curved and cupped, medium yellow inside, paler outside. The scent is strong , of exotic fruit and wine.
Jude the Obscure is the last novel by Thomas Hardy: it is said that the horrors of his own creation in this novel turned Hardy away from novels, to poetry.
