RE: Roses for my Friends

It looks like your rose garden is building up a good head of steam now, Kathy. You have a number of roses that have been on my wish list for quite awhile. Sombrueil and Souviner de Maimaison are two of my favorites. Tuscan Sun, Brass Band, Abraham Darby...what colors. I have that Golden Celebration. I saw one photo of a yellow bloom facing down without a name and I think it must have been Golden Celebration because my blooms are always hanging down. I love the buds on Fair Bianca and Mary Rose. Which is the most fragrant so far? What a lucky duck you are!! Not that they just 'appear' in your garden. I know they have to be a lot of work, so enjoy every minute! :-) They are all exquisite! Sorry to hear about 90 degree temperatures already.

It must smell heavenly there! But you need to back up and show us what is around the roses.... :-)

I love them all! I do like the peachy-pinks best, though :)

You are mastering your camera - and how fun that must be with such beautiful subjects.

I agree with Woody - we need a little virtual WALAT in your garden.

Kathy! your roses are just gorgeous! I'm so jealous, I just can't grow them well here. I get a few but nothing like this. Beautiful photos.

PS do you have any more pics of that lovely small flowered yellow rose?

Lovely loverly Spring treat, Kathy -- and you're doing wonders w/ your camera -- to even see the veining in the roses; I can almost smell them!! Thanks for sharing.

Kathy, your roses are gorgeous. They remind me of my sister's in Idaho. Her house is bordered by lovely tea roses. I am almost throwing in the towel on roses at this place. I can't even succeed with wild ones! I have attempted various varieties, and on both own-root and grafted. None succeed.
I wish I could smell yours. :-)

Kathy, they are beauties. You are the rose Queen. I can only enjoy my knock outs, before and after the Japanese beatles that is. The beatles only arrived here last summer but I'm sure they will be back.

Kathy, what a beautiful collection of roses you have. I saw a few that I've tried (and killed) in the past. You most definitely have the touch. I really enjoyed seeing all of your pretties! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Thanks everyone for such nice comments- I am really enjoying photographing the roses and hope to get a macro lens someday !

Deanne, are you inquireing about a rose in this slideshow or another I've posted before ? I have numerous pics of Lady Banks which is a small yellow rose, but I did not include here. I have several yellow roses, but most are 'full size' so to speak !

Saucy and Woody, I will try to get some photos that show the roses as garden features- I have not experimented much much with these types of shots yet (still on auto settings, lol) but I took a bunch on my lunch hour today and will see how they look later..

LOL Norma, Beatles/Beetles ! Are we children of the 60's or what ! I was pretty excited to see J. beetles in action at IU6 last summer (we don't have them here) and was horrified and fascinated at the same time.

Marian. I think deer are very fond of roses.. You may envy my roses but I envy your wonderful shrubs and trees !

PM, my most fragrant roses so far are Reinne des Violettes, Bolero , and Madame Issac..

Thanks again.. I confess that I have numerous that have yet to open. I'm afraid it's going to be But Wait, Theres More !
