ROSES in our Yard--Part V

I am trying to show at least one bloom of all of the different varieties of Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses in our yard this Spring/Summer/Fall.  We had about 55 different varieties, and as of today,  I have shown you 36 different ones.  If you missed some of my other Rose posts,  go to my sidebar,  scroll down to labels and click on Roses 2011.

The Rose above is RONALD REAGAN,  a gorgeous rose.  I love this name because he is one of my heroes.  Below are more.  Be sure to enlarge each picture for a better view!







 Hope you enjoy seeing our  Roses as much as I enjoy showing them to you... We've been pretty lucky with keeping the deer away this summer --but this past week,  one enjoyed a few of these beauties during the night... I do love deer --but I don't like them eating our roses... Grrrrrrr

If the deer would just sniff their wonderful fragrance and then move on, that would be much nicer.  (Ha Ha)..  We do use Liquid Fence --but obviously, even that doesn't totally deter them. especially when it's dry --like it has been this month.  That's just part of living in the woods!!!!!

On another note,  I am LOVING Facebook.  It's very different from Blogger --and I still enjoy blogging more.  But--I've caught up with LOTS of people from my past I had lost touch with.. That part is awesome.  

Have a fabulous day --and take time to 'smell the roses'.
