This is my climber Aloha by Kordes, AKA Aloha Hawaii. It always starts the bloom season with these wonderful light pastel colors before blooming darker.

It's growing up the side of my new trellis.
(It's dark as I took these yesterday at dusk with overcast skies as we are expecting more rain)

My first bloom on Veldfire, thanks Zuzu!
Had to crop as a bug chewed the outer petals.

Flash went off here so Brown Velvet looks brighter than it's deep rich coloring.

Thanks Toni!

Westerland just started along the fence, that's the lone Veldfire in the center and behind it along the fence is my new Polka, not blooming yet but full of buds. As you can tell, I favor the warm colors with blues, purples and lavenders as accents. No pinks here.

Hot Cocoa in the center, a Queen Palm to the left behind it and the trellis with Aloha on the other side. Lots of daylilies, iris, lavender geraniums ('Bill Wallis') fill in the bare spots around the roses and my yellow brugmansia is growing in with it's big leaves.

Oh, I love your parade. It has some great long shots in it. I can't do that yet. My garden is so full of black spot that no one would notice anything else.

Sorry about the trace of pink in Veldfire. I know you don't have room for pink, but you'll soon see that it's one of the most vibrant yellow and orange roses you'll have.

That kind of pink I love because it's blended with warm colors, similar to Chicago Peace. I just don't have solid pinks in general.
Black spot & rust here too but I know it will go away once the rains stop.

Wow, what a vibrant spot of orange. Is that Arctotis 'Pumpkin Pie'?

Actually, that is the bigger & brighter A. 'Flame', planted next to the pond in part sun so not as many blooms as usual. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/76307/

Tiny! I have a 1460 sq ft house on a 6099 sq ft lot. So that's just over 1/8 of an acre. I cram plants! We are currently looking for something around at least 1/2 acre.
