Tabby, that's beautiful! Are you in the first flush or do yours bloom like that all summer? Those plants look very happy and healthy.

It's the first flush, although the roses in that garden repeat well, especially the miniatures. I've also got a few hundred OGRs that are at peak right now.

I'm up near Rocky Flats on an acre. It's pretty fragrant here right now. Good time to take cuttings of non-patented roses.

I admire your planting arrangement. I somehow always end up with some short rose hidden between a couple of monsters. Beautiful!

Tabby - Westminster? I thought that Rocky Flats was near DIA. Anyways, absolutely gorgeous setup. Do you have a map of what you have individually? And how long did it take for you to plant that?

I have a list somewhere. I had a website for a couple of decades with lots of pictures and names but it needs restoring.

The garden in the picture in the first post took about 5 years to plant and the rest a total of about 10.

I'm surrounded by Arvada
