What a wonderful video, Philip, but not to be taken as gospel. Smiling The very first rose identified as a hybrid tea in the video, Apricot Nectar, is actually a floribunda.

I was surprised at the end of the video to see that the garden is in Fukuoka. I actually lived there for a while in a displaced persons camp when the Korean War started and we had to flee the country. Roses were not uppermost in our minds then, however, as you can imagine.

Hi Zuzu,..well spotted re the rose Apricot Nectar,..that video popped up in my Youtube Account as,.." recommended for you ",..after i uploaded a video,..the guys voice was very clear though it was the roses drew me.

Gosh i can well imagine roses were certainly not top of your list under the circumstances,..a camp for displaced persons would not have the best facilities in those days,..you could write a good story on that.

We actually had the camp to ourselves. We had escaped along with the Americans in Seoul because my mother worked for the U.S. Army. The Americans were taken care of by their embassy, but we were stateless, so we had to go to the DP camp. It was run by the Red Cross and manned by American soldiers. Not a bad experience, considering what we escaped. All of the other Russians in Seoul died.

I would never have guessed you went through such an experience,..you were very lucky your mother had that job and that the America Soldiers manned the camp plus the added bonus of the Red Cross running it,..still it was uncertain times,..sad about the Russians.
