I've said it before but Granada is one of my favorites because of its fantastic fragrance. Petal count, as with many roses I grow, vary with the season. That picture was taken during a very rainy bloom season. Granada seemed to love it.

Get some raffle tickets, Sassafrass, and maybe you'll be able to start out with an Antique Rose Emporium order. Smiling

Naaa I don't feel bad about it at all, as I've been really wanting to try roses again for many years. So I'd be tickled as punch to win, however I know whoever wins will be equally just as happy. Thumbs up

Zuzu - Remember we were discussing Spellcaster & it not being available any more, but I swore I saw it in the J&P catalog a while back? While looking (and drooling Drooling Drooling Drooling ) at Paul's roses (*drool some more*), it was Spell Bound I remember seeing.

Bleh. It's kinda like when you need to remember something & you end up remembering @ like 3am and you wake up saying what you needed to remember, but have no idea why you needed to remember it?

I think I may have only one picture that almost rivals Paul's gorgeousness.. but that's because 1) I suck at taking pictures and 2) most of my roses aren't half as pretty.

Lovely picture of Gemini.....and such kind comments. *Blush* *Blush* *Blush* Spellbound is the correct spelling. I have been spelling it wrong...not two words. A nice rose....it repeats well and holds its form.

At least you take pictures, I seldom seem to remember - but then, my pictures are not as memorable as most of you real rose folks, so keep them coming!
