that first photo is a framer!!!!
The first photo looks like a shoe-in (or bench-in or rose-in!) for winner! :)
Hi PhillipThey're all great photos.I like that watering can by the way.Miniature rose "Rise-N-Shine"is a beauty.
Yes, your Rose in a garden setting photos are outstanding!
Those are so beautiful I can almost smell the roses! --Randy
#2 is a winner in my book
Robin Hood always wins in the movies. I hope he wins at GGW. My Victorian sensibilities crave that that second photo wins. Minis are marvelous though.
I must get Robin Hood and Buff Beauty. You've convinced me. Yours are magnificent. Beautiful photos too.
I wish I could vote! I would certainly vote for the welcoming bench and rose! They are all great Phillip! Good luck~~gail
WOW. Love 1 and 2. I'm so envious of your garden. I know it took years and I'm only on year 2... but would love to hurry things along. Plus, you have a super great eye.Best,Emmie
They are all beautiful, not only the rose but the whole surrounding areas.
These photos are perfect! Wish my yard looked like these.
If I were the judge, Robin Hood wood be the winner of this contest.
This is a really great blog...glad I found it!
I live in Florence as well, and I just LOVE your Robin Hood! Do you know where I can get one?Thanks!Robin
Thanks for all the comments. FairyRobyn, you will probably have to order it from an online nursery. Google Antique Rose Emporium or Chamblee's Rose Nursery (both in Texas). They should have it. I'm going to try and root mine and if I'm successful, I'll be happy to share it with you.
Hey, no fair. Asking you for a rose photo is like asking Robin Williams for a joke. They're all great, but "Buff Beauty" has the best name.
I would vote for your photos! Fabulous! Beautiful charming settings.
They're all great photos. beautiful rose!!
