I have four rose bushes that I want to transplant from the front yard to the back yard. When would be the best time to move them?

It's generally easier on roses to move them when they're dormant. Since your winter weather remains mild, roses in your garden probably won't ever go into dormancy. I'd move them in December or January when, if they're not actually dormant, at least not actively growing. After transplanting you can prune them so they're ready to grow as soon as the weather warms.
