Day 12:Double Date

I resume on my trek once again, yes the Rose Safari Expedition at the ever immaculate Ngong Hills just south of the capital city of Nairobi, Kenya. On this day at a distance ahead of me, I come across the African buffalo! In many parts of Africa it is known as the widow maker as it is widely regarded as a very dangerous animal. Owing to its unpredictable nature, I quickly and quietly make my way off this peak and continue trekking all the way to the top of the next hill.

This is where I get to discover the Double Date. A bi-colored rose that has a light colored green base and a dashing red color right at the tips of the petals. Touching the rose, its delicate petals were soft to the fingers touch quite similar to that of a feather. To be clear, the sight of the rose reminds one to breathe! The bi-color on this rose is extremely unique, very lovely, exciting and truly a match made in heaven


The Double Date Rose is an amazing discovery and nobody on this earth would beg to differ. Characterized by long sturdy stems and large petals that open up to a big gorgeous head, words are simply not enough. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself, don’t you agree? I bet you do because its beauty is there for all to see. Oh.. and don’t forget to join me for next Rose Safari Expedition at the Ngong hills as we explore some more.
