Roses in our Yard---Part VI

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 43 different ones.  If you missed some of my other Rose posts,  go to my sidebar,  scroll down to labels and click on Roses 2011.

Today,  I will show you 7 more.  Above is one named  SOUTHERN BELLE.  George likes to say that this is the Betsy Rose --since I'm from the south!!!!! Below are more of our beauties. Hope you enjoy them!!!!





RIO SAMBA (all of them)
Here is a perfect example of how so many of our roses change colors as they age... Isn't that just amazing?    Oh --how I love Roses!!!!


Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our beautiful Roses.  I am so blessed to have George in my life ---since he is the "Rose Man"....  I just get to enjoy and SMELL them!!!!

Again, please forgive me for not leaving comments yesterday.  We are just very busy right now... AND---we had an awesome family dinner to celebrate Dad Adams' 99th birthday last night, at Dad's favorite restaurant,  Cracker Barrel.  He enjoyed it--and so did we!

Have a rosey day!!!!
