Trying to cross some roses, and I need ID'd on the parents please

(sorry, meant IDs in the title) Can you please help me ID these 2 roses? I am trying to cross breed a few in my yard this year, and I'd like to know the names. The first 2 pictures are of a miniature orange that has dark orange edges. It's one of my favorites.

The rest of the pictures are all of the same rose bush (even though one bloom looks a little different), its an OGR, before opening, the buds have lots of dark orange streaks, but when it blooms it's mostly yellow. Thanks!

The first one resembles my "Rainbow's End", except that RE, after starting out yellow and then getting toward orange like yours, ends up white with red on the edges of the petals!

The second one is intriguing - can you post more pictures of the leaves, and perhaps prickles?

The second one look like my Golden Celebration except it's too small. My GC blooms are twice that size. But your rose looks pretty small so maybe that's why those blooms are smaller.

Oh, and another question, can you cross a mini with a regular sized?

The mini could be rainbows end... I'll have to watch it and see how the colors develop. :) thanks

Yes, you can cross large roses with minis. Kim
