And with my first order from Palatine (http://www.palatineroses.com) under way, next I looked at Edmunds (http://www.edmundsroses.com). And came to a screeching halt because they're not accepting orders until the later part of October! What?? You mean I gotta wait THAT long?? Crying Crying Crying But I *do* know that they're carrying Ketchup & Mustard! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

So now I'm checking out GVR (https:/store.gardenvalley.com/). Their online store is kinda broken right now, but you can always use HMF to figure out who's what where. I didn't have any luck with Pickering Roses when I ordered them through one of MamaJack's co-ops I think.. and didn't have any luck either with Chamblee's roses but I'm going to say on both of these it's 100% MY FAULT. But still, I'm one of those once bitten twice shy people.

I think Mamajacks' co-op last year was through Chamblee's, not through Pickering.

Regans will also be carrying Ketchup & Mustard.

No more for me, I have too many still to plant and way too many other plants too.

I placed my order with Palatine and am happy that I got my dibs on several plants of Roxy and Water Lily before they went out of stock. If I place any more orders for roses for 2012 it will probably be from David Austin Roses, although my Brass Band roses from GVR could use some company.

I remember being as excited about the rose 'Rosie O'Donnell' as you are, Toni, about 'Ketchup & Mustard.' But I'm guessing I'm going to delay my purchase of that rose until 'Brats & Buns' is doing well in my garden. Rolling my eyes.

If I could find a Brats & Buns (perhaps a couple of chocolate colored roses?), then DH would be MORE than happy to help me dig holes.. thinking that he could eat them!!

I think a picnic rose garden would be fun. Chips & Salsa, Octoberfest, Brats & Buns, Ketchup & Mustard, Potato Salad, and Fudge Brownie or Ginger Snaps in the informal garden. Champaign Cocktail, Escargot, Mahi-Mahi , Plantain Fritter with Mango Chutney, Cherry Parfait or Rainbow Sorbet, and Courvoisier in the more formal garden. I can see we need to get rose breeders to work on a few of the menu items.
