Individual Roses in our yard 2011--Part I

As most of you know by now,  we have 57 different Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Rose Bush varieties in our yard.  I already showed some pictures of the 'overall' look of the roses in our yard.. Click HERE if you didn't see that post.

Today I'll start showing some of the individual blooms  which we have had so far this year.. Above is a beauty called PERFECT MOMENT.  Below are more.


VETERAN'S HONOR (Like Double Delight which I showed in the other post,  Veteran's Honor is another all-time favorite of mine.)


CRESCENDO (a new rose for us this year)



Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our individual rose blossoms today... Wish you could be here to SMELL them.

Have a wonderful weekend---and don't forget,  whatever you do,  to "Stop and Smell the Roses"!!!!  I will see you on Monday!


***IMPORTANT QUESTION:  George and I are doing some traveling this summer. We'll actually be in about 10 different states (including a tiny bit of Nevada near Las Vegas)...  IF you live anywhere near I-40 in Tennessee, Arkansas,  Oklahoma, Texas,  New Mexico,  and Arizona;  OR if you live anywhere near I-70 in Utah, Colorado, Kansas,   Missouri, --or I-24 in Kentucky----we'd love to meet you somewhere IF it works out... We will be on a schedule --so this would be a 'quick' hello --as we have to continue on our way!!!!!   Just asking!  Don't feel pressured.... But--it would be great to meet some of you --if convenient!!!  Email me if interested --and I can give you more info... Thanks!!!
