  1. That last one looks like the roses we used to make out of crepe paper. All very pretty.

  2. Oh yum yum yum, it's rose season again! I am waiting for the very first bloom of the season to open! I love all of yours, but I think 'Sweet Chariot' is my favourite.

  3. Wow, these roses are gorgeous! My roses are just starting, so I hope for some beauties. I'm fighting Rose Rosette disease her, and I'm afraid they will all succumb eventually. Wouldn't that be awful?

    1. Robin, yes it would! I had a few roses get it a few years ago. Fortunately it did not spread. As soon as you see it, get rid of the rose!

  4. Really pretty! I love the color of Buff Beauty. By the way, regarding your comment on my recent post, some of my mop heads are not blooming well, either. I do believe it was the harsh winter - two years in a row - that may be the culprit.
