Yesterday's visit to the old cemetery

Posted by Tuderte 9 (My Page) on

I've uploaded some photos to Flickr of various roses that were blooming yesterday when I visited the old cemetery - these are separate from the roses I posted of the 'Mother plant' of the rose I'm trying to identify.

Of course, I have no idea what any of these roses might be - need I say that they're all giants so, presumably, very old.

I hope everyone enjoys seeing them - they all seem to thrive on neglect.

Very pretty. I would love to see full bush shots of the roses if you have any.

Hi floridarosez9,

I'm sorry about the order of the photos …. I don't have the patience (or the skill) to re-organise them so that they make sense.

Looking at the 'set', there are 22 photos -
Photo number 6 is the bush of the first five roses -
Photo number 7 is the bush of the next four roses -
Photo number 14 is the bush of roses 12 and 14 -
Photo number 17 is the bush of roses 15 and 16
Photo number 22 is the bush of roses 18, 19, 20 and 21

Hope this helps

Tricia

They are wonderful photos! Are the roses scented?

I'm happy you enjoyed seeing the photos Cath - yes, all these roses are scented and (with the exception of the amazing red rose, which I didn't notice last year so I can't confirm whether it is or not) they are all recurrent flowering.

Gorgeous! The setting and the blue sky really make those roses even more beautiful.
Thanks for sharing your treasure.
