Yes. I am using the preposition “A” instead of “The” because I am certain that more rose pictures will grace this pages in the near future, wet or not. 🙂 I like roses (who does not?) even when they are thorny and a little persnickity. There are several of them in the yard – planted helter skelter anywhere they might possibly grow. For them, I dug 2 x 2 ft. holes. I did not mind. I would have dug up some more for new plants but I ran out of suitable places. As of last count, there are 12 bushes in the yard – in varying degrees of health and number of blackspots. I do not know how to deal with them.
These pictures are of roses from 4 bushes. They were still mostly buds when I took the pictures. They should all be in full bloom by now. The climbing roses, the orange ones, should be full of flowers by now. But I am on a holiday. I am missing the show.
Let me introduce the roses –
Pink – Mary Magdalene
Orange (first three orange flowers) – Westerland (a climber)
Orange with more varied shades – Joseph’s Coat (older flowers turn dark pink)
Yellow – Golden Celebration
I hope you enjoyed this little show. Have a beautiful blessed Friday. 🙂
