|Here are a few of the roses in bloom this afternoon, starting with this spray of Tuscan Sun, showing hues of apricot and peach.
And Scentimental, looking like a big piece of peppermint candy.
Opening night is a real beauty, rising tall in the back of the border, and enjoying a little afternoon shade.
Nearby is this Purple Tiger.
I'm pretty sure this is Gold Medal.
And right beside it is Midas Touch.
A little farther down the garden path is Champagne Cocktail. It's behaving a bit differently than last year: more solid rather than stippled coloration.
Royal Wedding is just around the corner.
And across the path stands Sixteen Candles.
Next to it is Rio Samba - a bit faded in the August sun.
English Garden can be found by the iron gate.
And up in the rock garden lies Moore's Striped Rugosa.
There are two others that I brought inside to photograph. Here's Gemini.
And finally, Blush Flower Circus.

|Wow, that Rio Samba is gorgeous.. Every time I try it it never seems to go for me. Love that Gemini... Mine keeps getting fried

|In case anyone's wondering why I didn't delete the duplicate entry of these photos, also present in "Photos and Chat, August 2011," it's because these photos deserve to be seen at least twice.|

|I agree. I certainly am not going to tire of looking at them.

|Mike, Love English Garden and Midas Touch! Starting a new list for next year now.

|I just thought my browser was broken, not knowing that I had already seen these but yes, they needed their own thread. And I do hope Mike adds them to the database!|
