THat is one gorgeous photo. Edmunds ought to buy that from you and use it in their catalog.
Did you cut blossoms and bring them indoors before the storm hit?
We're watching weather channel and I'm scared back here where we're safe and dry--can't imagine what you are going through on the coast. Hope you are safe.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Shannon - I notice this every year & really look forward to Sept/October as that's when my roses actually bloom the color they're suppose to, rather than bleached out!!!

For instance, here's a RedGold in the middle of July:


Same plant, but in October

It's like having a whole new plant when you get weather related color changes!

Your Bull's Eye (don't forget to add your shots to the database!) reminds me of my Eyeconic Pink Lemonade I picked up a couple of months ago, still in it's pot and has been blooming non-stop. It does color changes as the rose ages so it quite colorful.
