Miniature rose

As I have mentioned previously, Adelaide's climate is well suited to growing roses. 'Miniature' rose flowers are about 5cm across, and the bushes only grow to about 50cm in height. I photographed this rose this morning in our front garden; getting familiar with my macro lense.

Was in a rose garden at Rotorua and we saw a Brandy Rose, the scent was very strong.

What about the miniature rose, does it have a good scent?
