Sue, I always find remodeling projects exhausting. I am impressed with your perseverance. Pictures of before and after would be fun.

Computer is acting up today. We will see if I can post some things or not. Question first. Do you have to have a video on Youtube in order to post it or the link on here? Inquiring minds want to know.

Here is a picture of my first bloom on Mary Magdalene this year. I had planted a rose (mini) near her with similar coloring, that I rescued from the grocery store. I think the two blend well together and the mini rose (no name unfortunately) is growing well in its new environment. Yes! Mary is in the back of the picture and the mini is in the front of the picture.

I thought I would try to capture the long sepals on Vick's Caprice. He is such a charmer! Love the lighter green color of his leaves.

Sequoia Gold is about ready to burst. The number of buds on there is amazing, but it is an amazing rose.

Thanks Carol. I am so enjoying my garden this year with the long spring we have had. I am keeping my fingers crossed we get a couple more weeks of it before the heat hits.

Not sure I understand your question. You can only post photos here, you can't inbed a video into a post. A video would have to be uploaded elsewhere, like Youtube, and then you can post a direct link to that video.

First bloom of this year. I am in awe of South African Sunbelt's color and bloom size.

What is you're favorite color rose. Mine is red and 8 out 10 times that's what I buy. Basically any shade close to red , purple. Second I might buy white and the rest after that, was thinking if I was Zuzu I might have 1500+ red rose's with some other. Sorry if I offend anyone but I hate yellow and orange colors in general. I try to buy other colors, but I find myself doing so only to balance the red.

I like most colors and since I have limited sun and limited space because of the sun I decided I really wanted my area to be colorful so I try to make sure each rose back there is a different color and no 2 colors next to each other.

My favorite color is probably a dark red but I like almost all of them.

I do what Amanda does: I avoid planting two roses of the same color next to each other. I get really annoyed when a nursery mislabels a rose and I end up with two similar roses side by side. I guess Amanda and I follow the "quilting" rule in our gardens: repeated colors or patterns, but not adjacent.

I like roses of any color, but I probably buy fewer white roses and yellow roses than any others. The reason is that my garden is full of white and yellow perennials and volunteer annuals, so I don't necessarily need any more blooms of those two colors in my garden.

I've also become somewhat jaded in my rose aesthetic. I rarely buy solid-colored roses these days. I prefer bicolor or multicolored blooms.

I went exploring today around my roses. Looks like I will be replacing Sir Thomas Lipton. There is nothing there. Oh My looks dead also but I didn't want to damage any possible feeder roots that are still alive so I didn't dig too much there. Baden Baden is putting out buds above the graft so it's good to go and I can cut all the dead growth off. It got hit hard this winter and I lost about 2-3 feet of growth on it. All the others in that area are looking great!!

I'll be visiting family up north soon so I'll be hitting a nursery to see if I can find roses I don't see down here. I need a white and another color since I have an orange, pink/white bicolor, light pink, dark red and a yellow rose back there.

Can't forget the bicolor roses, I probably love them equally. No two colors aside each other? Hmmm if y'all was my neighbor and don't have OCD you might get it with some of my colors grouped together, like a bed of reds with white only on the border. Some might be every other but....

Like Amanda and Zuzu, I don't plant the same colored roses next to each other. I do more of light-dark-contrast-yet-compliment-each-other strategy. I have a moderate-sized backyard, so I like to make it as colorful as possible.

Pink is my favorite color of rose! And, lucky me, there are many, many pink roses!

Shayam - your Out of Africa bloom may be the most beautiful rose I have ever seen!!! Lovey dubby Drooling Exquisite!!!! Thank You!

Amanda - I had a chance to get Baden Baden...what do you think of it? Any pictures?

Maybe J can start a thread that asks people what their favorite roses are for certain colors. I love those threads!!!

Trying to find blooming pics but here's a bush shot. The blocks are there because I couldn't dig deep enough into the clay to bury the graft as deep as I wanted so improvised. Hilarious!

I was going to start a thread, but since this thread said chat I figured my mouth would work here. Plus I'm not a big attention seaker (not saying starting a thread is that). I look at this thread as one big group conversation with multiple topics. I'm not a internet chit chatter. This is about as wild as I get.

That's my neighbors in the last post. Trying to block the view. Hilarious! Hoping Earth Right will give the roses a nice shot of nutrients and help them set better roots and hopefully take off this year. I want some height in there!!

When I started my garden, there was no rhyme or reason to it and I decided I wanted A rose (ONE) of each color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Purple, and White. No pinks...dunno why...just wasn't into pink...at the time. I had minimal experience with roses prior to this but wanted to try them.
Those first 5 did extremely well and then I got hooked. (You KNOW where this is going !)
I continued to buy more and more roses with NO consideration given to color harmony/pairing, but should have. lol Green Grin!
Then people started giving me roses as gifts, so they went into the mix.
Now, 63 roses later, I wish I'd had the foresight to arrange them differently, but oh well. Luckily, the ones that tend to "clash" rarely bloom at the same time. A few pinks found their way in to the collection and then I got into mixing perennials and daylilies in with the roses and I liked that.
I inadvertently started to amass a lot of orange roses w/o giving it much thought. A lot of people don't like "orange" but I'm ok with it.
Now, thanks to Shayam, I really want South African Sunbelt !!!

Lordy...we're all such enablers here !
