2010 Roses---Part III


Here's SIX more of our 2010 Roses in our yard. In order to see the other 12 I have published so far, go to the LABELS on my sidebar, scroll down to ROSES 2010 and click there. We have 55 different varieties ---and today's pictures make a total of 18 of them so far. Above is a pretty light pinkish/peachish one named SONIA. Below are more!





This one is pretty with its light and dark yellow colors. Its name is SOUTHERN BELL, and this one is one of our new roses in 2010.




This pretty hot pink rose is named ELIZABETH TAYLOR.




This yellow beauty is pretty with its pink edges. Its name is BELLA'ROMA.




I love the vivid colors in this rose. This one is named PERFECT MOMENT.




This beautiful Tennessee Orange colored rose is named STRIKE IT RICH.

The knee surgery went fine yesterday---so hopefully, the pain will all disappear.. I'll let you know AFTER I get off of the pain medication next week. Right now---I'm pretty 'woozy'.... Ha!!! I'll take the weekend off --and will blog again on Monday morning.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again for all of the kind words and prayers sent my way recently.

Hugs,

Beautiful roses, I of course love the Southern Bell. Glad the surgery went well. Take it easy on those meds. I am going to have my elbows checked this morning...severe tendonitis, surgery may be ahead for me as well..sigh

Jane said...

I hope you don't have to use a lot of insect spray to keep the aphids off?

I used to use soap but can't remember the name of it.

Now I only got one rose. An afterthought I am trying to give away to the first person who wants it. It is a red knock out rose. The aphids don't even like it.

Harriet said...

Betsy, I'm so glad your surgery went well. I'll continue to pray that you have a full recovery. Hope you will soon be walking in your beautiful yard. LOVE the roses!!I like the Perfect Moment best!

Jen said...

A person would be hard pressed to find roses this beautiful in a flower shop. Stunning!
WHAT A BLESSING that you were able to get your knee looked at and surgery done so quickly.
I know you have a good nurse there at home to look after you. :)

Susie said...

Just looking at all those beautiful roses ought to make you feel better.

Glad the surgery went well. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

amelia said...

Strike it rich is my favourite. We had a very similar rose but it didn't make it through the winter. Too cold..

I hope the pain has stayed away!!!

I love Southern Bell...it is a real beauty. But then, so are the others.

The Retired One said...

Exquisite photos of these gorgeous flowers! I can't pick a favorite!

Diana (Di) said...

Betsy, be sure and do what the doctor orders, but no grass cutting yet. :) So happy to know all went well and that you are on the road to recovery.

P.S. all beautiful roses, but Bella'Roma sort of reached out and grabbed me.

Ocean Girl said...

The roses are so gorgeous, I'm sure they help you heal.

Take care Betsy.

Blessings on your recovery, Betsy. Beautiful roses. Although I favor the delicate pink each one is so beautiful on its own. Diane

Becca's Dirt said...

Good news on the knee Betsy. Soon you'll be chasing George around the yard playing 'catch me if you can'. 55 rose varieties. Wow didn't know you had that many. Each one I say is my favorite but the photo is better than the ones before it. Bella'Roma or Perfect Moment will be my favs today. Stunning. Have a good weekend and don't go joining any races today.

Ginny said...

Sonja and Southern Belle are my favorites, but Bella Roma is definitly the best picture, with the little curl on it and the way the light is hitting it! I'm betting you are finally getting some good sleep now, hope you have a restful and pain free weekend.

Together We Save said...

They are all so beautiful but "Strike is Rich" is amazing! What talent you must have! So how is the knee? Better I hope!

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Betsy: Your roses are wonderful. I'm so glad the surgery went well. Let's hope the knee is ready for the waterfall walks.

I wish I had the 1/4 of the Roses you do Betsy! All gorgeous! Glad to hear the knee surgery went well. Will you have to have physical therapy? Take good care and rest up!!
Hugs,

Glenda said...

So glad you're surgery went well and hope your recovery is swift and complete!

Your roses and your yard deserve to win some kind of prize or award! I love the Perfect Moment . . . very appropriately named, too!

Have a restful weekend!

From the Kitchen said...

Betsy: I love looking at your roses. We are "accidental" rose gardeners. I think the fact that they grow well here is in our favor. We cut them frequently and bring them in to enjoy on our table.

We, too, love traditional pizza with MEAT!! I just didn't have any on hand in the refrigerator!!

Have a rosy weekend.

Best,
Bonnie

From the Kitchen said...

Best,
Bonnie

Karin said...

All the roses are lovely. You must be well organised to know/keep all the names and remember which is which. Hope the op is a success.
