I bought a few weeks ago my roses (bewitched) from the nursery, I re-potted it right away and until now all is good.
Now, most of the leaves turned yellow with dark spots on them, and they felt.
New ones are replacing them, and the plant is still blossoming.
What is happening? I live in Bermuda, temperature is close to 90 with high levels of humidity.
Attached some examples, front and back of the leaves

This is typical black spot fungus, one of the most common rose diseases. You can spray with a fungicide. It won't cure the leaves already infected, but can help to prevent it from spreading to other leaves.

If blackspot continues to be a problem long term, that may not be the best rose for your conditions.
