Thanks, Dennis, I enjoyed the pictures too. What is the stone structure extending into/over the reflection pool?

I'm looking for someplace to share and get feedback on some rose seedlings I've got going - for the first time. Mother/pod parent plants are Rainbow Sorbet and Chrysler Imperial. Here are two

Porkpal. I think the structure you are referring to is in the far left hand corner in the attached photo,

I had a raging head cold when I visited the Alhambra and I could hardly remember my name. So I'm not certain it's the structure you're referring to.

I love the look of the second seedling...and the fragrance of the first. Smiling Keep us posted as to how they do...cause they'll probably change a bit as the months go by...more fragrance, more petals, etc. I'm so excited for you!!! The second seedling is ethereally beautiful!!

I did not find MAC rose in hmf

Today I looked under the shelter and I did not like it at all. It pours from the ceiling.

Rema - MAC is short for Mme Alfred Carriere. They give roses such long names that we tend to use their initials. I will be moving that particular MAC to another location this winter because she is going to be too big for where I planted her. I have another one on the other side of the house so if the transplanting doesn't go well I will still have at least one.

I deleted Mme Alfred Carriere. It was devoured by scarabs. She also fell and lay on the ground, but it wintered well. Maybe I hurried ... but I decided to stay with David Austin's roses. All roses are beautiful, you can make a masterpiece from almost any rose. But is it possible to embrace everyone? I confined myself to Austin's roses, squinting my eyes at the rest and plugging my nose and ears !!
Is it only ramblers yet ...? Lovey dubby

Lola, does Troilus behave like a shrab or like a tea hybrid?

Thank you, Carol. Last summer, it had some thrip problems, maybe even those chili thrips. Just noticing how green the outward petals are on the bloom opening up! I appreciate the "nearly thornless" aspect on newer growth.

Rema - This is my Troilus. It is around 1m tall and vase shaped. It has a bit of black spot at the moment so it is missing some leaves but it has never been particularly leafy in my garden anyway. A few of my roses tend to BS here but the blooms are not impacted so I don't mind at all.

Rosemary - yes, I love that green too! How odd, isn't it, to have green on rose petals. Lovey dubby

SoCal - looking good! I love all those buds on FLS.

Lola - your Troilus looks good to me! Lots of blooms!

I know I have been pretty quiet the past couple of weeks. In between lovely rain showers, I have been working frantically on my garden. Everything is now fertilized and has compost on it, in addition to worm castings and bat guano. Plants that I ordered (not roses) have been planted and I had to run the drip system to them. I picked up a small patio rose from Trader Joes before the madness set in of people raiding the store. I couldn't live one second longer without seeing a rose in bloom. So that rose is now planted and I ran the drip to it. I have some new succulents and those are now all planted. In two days, I put down 70 cubit yards of mulch on everything, picked up what little weeds I had, etc. I still need to finish putting my squirrel/cat repellent on my fence but that will have to wait until it stops raining. I did add 60 feet of edging to the garden beds in the front and front side yards as well, and love the results. Also finished pruning my trees. They look great! I will also be putting down some copper tape on my citrus tree trunks and in the legs of my raised beds to see if that will deter snails. Ah, yes, my garden is one experiment after another.

I have also taken a couple of extra shifts at work due to staff being ill, etc. I did plant some greens in my rose nursery as I eat greens so frequently (aka, breakfast, lunch and dinner) and was unsure if there would be availability at the stores and my availability to get out if myself or a loved one gets the virus. I can now pick my own for a meal.

Everything looks so beautiful! The rain has made everything so nice and green. I have had neighbors drop by to comment on how nice my yard looks.

Still working on changing the landscaping at my planned unit development (PUD) and we have made major changes, including going to drip irrigation, on a couple of beds, removing trees, bushes, etc. We are starting to do a more drought tolerant landscape here (it's about time!). Of course, after spending 2 hours changing the timers on the water system to what they should be for the soil and landscape (and mandated water days), the gardeners changed them all back, so I have to get on them to redo everything. UGH! I am not happy about spending another two hours with them to get everything back as to how it should be. It should be interesting as we "social distance" from each other while trying to do this.

So I have been busy, busy, busy. My roses are all budding except for Marchesa Boccella. She did not make a single bloom last year and I purposely have not pruned her just in case I have the wrong rose. I am thinking this might be the wrong rose and only a once bloomer, so I didn't want to prune her just in case I pruned off this year's flowers.
She looks a bit weird as she has long canes with leaves on the last foot or so of the cane. The rest of the cane is bare. I am trying to tie down a couple of canes (they are rather stiff) to see if that will produce more leaves and any flowers at all. Once I am sure she really is Marchesa Boccella, then I will prune her down as Burling stated. She wanted me to prune her a third after she bloomed so she would bloom again. Problem is, she has never bloomed.

My Mademoiselle Francisca Kr├╝ger aka, Miss Freddie Kruger, has a ton of buds on her and I am so excited to see her first blooms!

My Sequoia Gold has already bloomed this week, and it has followed its own tradition of being first and last to bloom. In fact, it would bloom constantly all year if I let it. It is a great mini rose.

My beloved, Vick's Caprice also has buds on him as does Souvenir de McKinley. I am anxious to see the blooms on McKinley since he is new to me and my garden. My other new roses, Ascot, Ma Perkins, Borderer and Alice Hamilton are doing just fine with the start of new buds on them as well. Can't wait until they are in bloom in the next month or so. My older DA rose, Emily, continues to do just fine in her spot (finally) and is loving being on drip. She has some nice buds on her. I will try to get out and get some pictures if it stops raining here (but we sure can use the rain).

MBN. keep waiting on Marchesa Boccella. Sometimes the once bloomers set buds later than the others because some of them don't bloom as early. My neighbors doesn't bloom until late June or early July. But then it blooms for weeks.

No gardening here yet either. No snow but it's just to wet, cold and windy to play outside.

Happy First Day of Spring!
