Lots of Pictures

Hey everyone!

I haven't posted any pictures in some time, so I figured I'd put some up here. Most are newer, potted up bands, or first season bare roots, but there are lots of pretty blooms to share.

Pam's Choice

Wonderful roses and photos, Jay! Rosette Delizy steals my heart every time but I dooubt it would winter here. Love that polka dotted begonia!

RE: Lots of Pictures

Stunning pictures! I just loved Orchard's Pride.

RE: Lots of Pictures

Beautiful roses. Thanks for sharing!

RE: Lots of Pictures

So many beautiful roses--it's impossible to pick which ones I like best! Too many! LOL

I am decidedly jealous of your Boule de Neige, however. I ordered one for this spring--from Hortico. At the last minute they told me they couldn't fill the order. I think they must have sent their last order to you! It is soooooo lovely--why didn't I get it?

Orchard's Pride--unusual but very appealing. And I always like Dark Night--but so many of the others also, like I said.


RE: Lots of Pictures

Oh wow!!! I loved all of them!!! My favs were Bishops Castle, Pam's Choice!!!, RdV, Koko Loko, and Belinda's Dream!!
What a lot of lovelies!!

RE: Lots of Pictures

Boule de Nege, Chicago Peace, Rosetted de Lizy and your cute kitty Buttercup all stole my heart. Thank you so much for sharing! it;s always a pleasure to see how roses grow in different parts of the country. You have inspired me to share my Texas roses! Going to work on it now.

RE: Lots of Pictures

Wonderful blooms! Thank you for sharing. :)

RE: Lots of Pictures

A beautiful assemblage of roses and other beauties, including little Buttercup. My favorites are Pam's Choice, Pride of Oakland, Sophie's Perpetual,Tea Clipper, Francis Meilland and The Alnwick Rose, although they're all very good choices. Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures.


RE: Lots of Pictures

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Haha, I promise you I didn't order mine from Hortico, Kate! That's too bad your order couldn't be fulfilled, but whenever you do receive a Boule de Neige, you will be verrrry happy. I absolutely love white roses and only Madame Hardy and Blanchefleur make my heart race faster than BdN.

It might be fun to see everyone's pets in a thread. Buttercup can't be the only kitty prowling around forum member's roses.


RE: Lots of Pictures

You're to blame Jay, you made me start my 2015 order list. I have to have Sophies Perpetual! I couldn't even continue looking at your list until I searched it out on Help Me Find, and now I have to have her!
Great pictures a few I hadn't seen before, so thanks for taking the time to post!

RE: Lots of Pictures

How do you post so many pictures at once? It would be very nice to be able to do that.

Your photos are great and what a nice selection of roses! I used to have that silene but lost it - you make me sorry that it's gone!

RE: Lots of Pictures

Thanks Anita! The Silene is 'Druett's Variety.' I believe an uniflora.

As far as posting so many photos, if you upload your photos to an image hosting website like photobucket, you can get the html embed code for a picture and then post as many of those on an individual post as you would like. As you copy and paste the html codes in your post here they will appear as long chains of indecipherable numbers and letters, but once you hit "preview message," you should then see how the post will appear with actual pictures. I hope this helps!


RE: Lots of Pictures

Beautiful pictures. I enjoyed looking at them.

RE: Lots of Pictures

Lovely pics. Thank you for sharing.

RE: Lots of Pictures

Really nice. I like how you have modern roses mixed with OGR's.

RE: Lots of Pictures


Here's another Pam's Choice.


RE: Lots of Pictures

Pam's Choice is subtly striking. Nice closeup.
