Your Gebrueder Grimm almost looks like that Calico shot I put up a couple of days ago. BTW, those colors are extremely rare for Calico. Usually it is more white/Pink and Yellow blend. When I get a new flush of blooms I'll take another pictuere of it.

Beautiful blossoms, Zu, as always. Alan, your former yard sure was lovely!

Gosh, Zuzu, where should I begin to say how much I like which rose? Here are some of my favorites, without simply reposting the entire list:

Apricot Nectar - I love nearly all apricot-colored roses, and yours is no exception

Baron Girod de l'Ain - when I saw a photo you posted of this rose two years ago I ordered one, but it was at the end of the season so I tried to overwinter it in a pot in the garage, but it didn't make it. Maybe I should give it another try.

Baronne Edmond de Rothschild: - nice reverse!

Blastoff - I never heard of it till now, so I looked it up on HMF, and saw that they have no record of anyone selling it. There are so many of Ralph's roses I wish I could find.

Camille Pissarro - another one I hadn't heard of, probably because it's only just barely hardy enough for my area, so it probably isn't sold in my neck of the woods.

Castilian -- very nice, like a florist's rose.

Centennial Star - I really like its cupped shape and pink-tinged yellow blossoms

Champagne - what beautiful, classical form.

Champagne Cocktail - I got my first one this year from Heirloom, but it's small (I know, don't get you started) and is growing in a pot.

Cherries and Cream - that's the one I saw with you and Sue at Garden Valley Ranch. So nice, but only just barely hardy for my region.

Distant Drums - has always been one of my favorites because of its unusual colors

Dream Come True - pure perfection in form, size, and color

Easy Does It - another one with great form

Gingersnap - if I had any more room I'd get it. Well, there is that one spot over by the armillary. Come to think of it, I could just get rid of the armillary... Glare

Nice Portmeirion photo, Angie!

Mike, I have at least a dozen each of roses with "apricot" and "amber" in their names. It's something like Toni with all of her "blue" roses. I think I probably also have dozens of "sunrise" and "sunset" roses. As soon as I see that the name contains any of those words, I have to have the rose.

Blastoff came from Sequoia, so it's possible that Burlington might have it someday.

Get rid of the armillary. No, wait... Do you have a photo of it? It might be better looking than Gingersnap. Is it an armillary sphere?

I'm with you Zu, attracted to the apricot, sunrise & sunset roses! But there are always more in your parades that I adore and eventually add to my wish list.
