Sue,
What a beautiful photo! I grow this rose, and it's never looked as lovely as yours. You are an excellent photographer and gardener. Wow. Very nice. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you all!

@CindiKS, thanks, it's a real beauty, in another week it should explode into full bloom. It was the first rose I planted when we moved here 3 years ago and it's a huge shrub now, probably 5 ft tall and 6 ft. wide. The new bronze foliage is just lovely and really sets off those pretty coral peach blooms!

I once made the mistake of touching a rose bloom and the owner just about died - told me the oils and such from the touch of skin would mess up the delicate petals ... but ... if I saw this bloom I'd just bury my face in it! Totally gorgeous! Rolling my eyes.

What a fussy rose owner! Wonder what they would have said if you stuck your nose into the bloom. Green Grin!
I love roses with yummy shades of sunset and some of mine look like orange juice in color.

I've never heard that about roses before. Gosh, if I couldn't touch those soft petals and put my nose into the bloom, I wouldn't have them nodding

Beautiful. I'm not much of a 'rose person' . . . until they bloom, and then all is forgiven!

Just the anticipation of the blooms, the scents, makes me love them.
