You're so right, Chrissy: the blooms from the same plant can look so different from one flush to the other that showing only one bloom does not give you a real appreciation of how the blooms change--according to the season, growing conditions, age of bloom etc.

GHA does resemble Golden Butter, on the basis of those photos, although I remember you saying that GHA has the stronger perfume. Anyway, here is a comparison of two of my GB crosses showing how different they look from above, side-on and below. GB#4 (the one whose label I couldn't find) is larger and has the waxier bloom, and both have the classic aurea scent although I can't yet work out which is stronger. I must say, I haven't yet had a GB cross that I haven't liked :-)
