What rose is this?

I have had this rose for a long time, and lost the tag. It smells really good. Buds look pink/bronze, then a day or so after they open, they become a really light color.

It looks like Distant Drums to me.

Yes, Distant Drums. It is quite distinct. Kim

Thank you all so much! Now, that you said the name, I remember buying a rose with that name. I just love this rose, it is such an unusual color. I am going to have to buy some rose markers. I have a couple more roses, tags are gone from.

I find maps help, along with tags. The latter not rarely get lost; it helps to have a backup source of information.
