Roses and More Roses

The roses are just spectacular this year, they looked so seedy last year that I was despairing of some of them and feared they might need to be dug out and replanted.  What a difference a year makes.  This is what is called a semi-wild minature rose and it started from a tiny little pint pack and has grown larger and more rose-filled every year.

This is from our Queen Elizabeth, a climbing rose that climbs well but flowers seldomly.  In a good year we might get 3 flowers and 3 feet of growth.  

This is from a plant we call the Jim Ed Memorial

 Rose because it comes from a plant my Father had ordered shortly before he died in 2003 and I planted in his name.  He gives truly sweet white roses every year.

This peach beauty grows next to the Queen Elizabeth, wish I could remember its name, but it is a stylish proficient bloomer.
