What is this flower?

It's been a gorgeous few days in Edinburgh. Today we are back to clouds, but still have t-shirt temperatures. I was getting sunburned anyway (as was most of the fair-skinned population, it seems), so that's cool.

We also spied on lots of neighborhood gardens and discovered a rose tree two stories high, as well as this flower. Does anyone know what it is? Its AudreyII-looking buds are one for the scrapbook.
