It took me a whole year to do another podcast (my bad)! The first one was up on my old blog, but you can still find it on SoundCloud. To listen, press the red circle button (audio runs 6 min).
OUTLINE PODCAST #1
What is the Mystical Rose?
1. Princess Diana heirloom rose. I discovered there are 2 competing roses!
a) The official “Princess of Wales rose” is sold only in the U.K. (also called “Hardinkum”). This rose is beautiful, with soft white petals and a touch of cream in the center of the flower! CLICK HERE FOR LINK
b) The imposter “Diana, Princess of Wales rose” is only sold in the U.S. (also called “Elegant Lady”) and is ONLY AVAILABLE from this online seller (it was sold out when I searched for it). I don’t like this rose. It’s very bright pink around the edges. CLICK HERE FOR LINK
2. Princess Diana memorial rose gardens in England
a) Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk takes you through the most famous parks around Kensington Palace in London where the princess lived both while she was married and after the divorce (she was given a small townhouse on the property). You walk 7 miles, following 90 metal roses placed in the sidewalk (I definitely want do walk this someday!). I’m not sure if there is a rose garden or not. CLICK HERE FOR LINK
b) There are a few small rose gardens planted in her honor by various groups around England, but nothing too impressive. There is also a fountain in her honor (designed like a small stream you can wade in, but with lots of slippery concrete) in a London park, but I’m not a fan of it.
c) 2017 is the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death (on July 1st), and her sons are planning a new rose garden at Kensington Palace. I hope it’s beautiful!
