  1. When I see a spectacle like this I feel a deep seated case of Rose envy. Heavenly.

  3. Wonderful! There is nothing like a swath of roses to create a mood of romanticism. I once planted Rambling Rector, hoping it would climb a nearby tree and create such a spell. Didn't happen; it neither bloomed or climbed, and eventually I removed it. Sigh. Yours is perfect!

  7. I know I've said it many times, but here it is again - your garden is gorgeous! And, the roses are charming!

  8. I really enjoyed the violet lavender colors, if that is their real color. They look that way on my computer screen. I want even though I don't grow roses.
