The first rose, Peace rose, and Strike It Rich are my favorites, and they look so much like fall and like your gorgeous header!!!

HI Betsy What a great way for me to start the day but to gaze at all your beautiful roses. I was going to pick a favorite however as there wasn't a gun at my head, I decided they were all fantastic in different ways. They all look very healthy and you have photographed them excellently.

Blackberry Lane said...

I did enjoy all the roses, but Sonia is my fav. Have a lovely weekend.

Fun60 said...

Your roses are beutiful and not the slightest sign of any munching from the greenflies!

eileeninmd said...

HI Betsy, I have been enjoying your beautiful roses. Lovely photos! Have a happy weekend!

Tabor said...

Not sure how you maintain all your roses with all your travel!!

From the Kitchen said...

I've enjoyed your roses all summer long. I'd love to just drive slowly past your house. People must do that!! The photos are just lovely.

Best,
Bonnie

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

So pretty. I love the peace rose.

Sandra said...

1 place is a triple tie between peppermint, midas and glowing peace...wow they are stunning. and i love all the buds, i like the buds as much as the open

linda m said...

I can't decide which I like better - the rose or it's name. Love the pictures. Praying for all the people in Colorado. I have family that live there and so far they are okay but one is stuck in his neighborhood due to a flooded road. Have a great weekend.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I did...I did so enjoy this post. Roses can't be compared to any other flower. I loved the peppermint one, and the sonia comes in a real close 2nd. :o)

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Thanks for all the beautiful roses. I am enjoying my week of music,but had to take the time to stop and 'smell' the roses.

Busy Bee Suz said...

So darn beautiful; all of them!!! I wish we had smell-vision. :)
Enjoy your weekend Betsy!
XOXO

Shug said...

I couldn't possibly choose a favorite, as they are all absolutely stunning! We live about 10 miles from the famous "Tyler Rose Garden"...however, there is no need to visit it and have to deal with the HOT temps, when I can simply visit your blog and see the most gorgeous roses ever! The photography is just perfect!!

Arkansas Patti said...

Strike it Rich made my want list. All are beautiful but that one stands out.
Have a safe and fun week end.

Linda said...

All really beautiful and to have them blooming for so many months must be a joy. BellaRoma is my favourite, of course!

Glenda said...

Oh, these are all just breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you for sharing the loveliness with us! I could not begin to choose a favorite, either, and I'm amazed that they are still blooming so wonderfully for you! Praying for those in the midst of all that flooding....

So today is my lucky day! The number 13 has always brought me good news and happiness. Your garden is so beautiful, and I'm happy to see all these flowers open up this world! It's a pity that I live in a small apartment, and I only have space for a few plants .....

Have a nice weekend Betsy!!!

Gosh - this seems so late for roses to be blooming. But I guess not for your area. They sure are pretty!
Wishing you a happy weekend Betsy!

Rose ~ from Oz said...

The flooding in Colorado is heartbreaking, nature seems to be unleashing her fury around the world in different ways at present.

I'm stumped Betsy, I usually enjoy the challenge of choosing a favourite but alas, after enlarging and 3 go-throughs, I cannot pick a fav today!!
