|Touch of Class Rose--taken 6/4/14|
I decided in May to do a "Favorite Roses Blog Post" each month this year, until all of the roses are gone by the end of Autumn... IF you missed the May rose choices, click HERE. In that post, I decided to feature 10 of my favorite May roses--plus an extra one, which was special for another reason.
WELL--since I made my own rules, I guess it is okay to break them... Since JUNE was a HUGE month for Roses (I photographed 624 pictures of roses in June --which came from 54 different varieties), I decided to feature 15 this month instead of 10, plus one more special one. AND--choosing just 16 was HARD since these roses (being the first blooming rose groupings of the year) are some of the prettiest we have all season.
BUT--I did it (chose 15 instead of 10), so I hope you enjoy seeing them today! Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements. Sit back and enjoy the beauty... I only wish you could smell some of these beauties... We buy Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses ---and try to buy the 'fragrant' ones when possible....
