A couple of my reds are blooming today. It was a little overcast earlier this afternoon and I was able to capture the red a little better than usual on Let Freedom Ring. Seems like it is going to be vigorous, but WOW it has a lot of thorns!
I think Firefighter is a lovely red, love the bloom shape and the fragrance!

Wow those are some nice reds Sara Ann!
Those are both beautiful, Sara! And what at great comparison of the two. It really shows off the differences in color and form well.
Sara, beautiful roses! Let Freedom Ring is one of my favorites, but your picture of Firefighter could make me reconsider.
Yeah baby! Firefighter all the way! Love this rose - great fragrance, lots of blooms, no disease with minimal spraying. Got mine from Angel Gardens in Florida.
So glad I got Firefighter!! So far, it's tiny with only one bloom. But wait till next year!!
Thanks for the look!!!
Thanks everyone. I like them both, and despite what I previously thought, LFR does have a nice light fragrance. Grandmothers, I am glad to know that your Firefighter has lots of blooms, lots of fragrant red blooms, sounds wonderful. Seil - I agree, the pictures are a good way to compare the difference between the two. Kentucky_rose, it is hard to decide on a favorite for me. Carol - Last year my Firefighter did very little, but this year is much better, hopefully next year it will be great!
Where did you get Firefighter in Canada?
Another bloom of Let Freedom Ring.
