The first photo looks like a shoe-in (or bench-in or rose-in!) for winner! :)

Hi Phillip

They're all great photos.

I like that watering can by the way.

Miniature rose "Rise-N-Shine"
is a beauty.

Mr. McGregor's Daughter said...

Yes, your Rose in a garden setting photos are outstanding!

Jamie and Randy said...

Those are so beautiful I can almost smell the roses! --Randy

#2 is a winner in my book

Lisa at Greenbow said...

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.

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.

I live in Florence as well, and I just LOVE your Robin Hood! Do you know where I can get one?
Thanks!
Robin

Phillip said...

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.

Carol said...

I would vote for your photos! Fabulous! Beautiful charming settings.
