I've neglected my parades shamefully. If you've kept up with the database entries, you've seen most of these, but here they are again anyway. These will take me days to post because I ended up with 87 million photos in spite of the dratted mini-heatwaves that seemed to occur just when things were supposed to bloom.

This is Almondeen, a hybrid tea.

Here's Autumn, showing up in decidedly autumnal colors. It usually has some lavender around the edges.

Belinda's Dream has a funny story behind it. Seedpicker from DG sent me a rooted cutting of it in 2005 or 2006. It was a rather puny cutting and it promptly died. It died so irrevocably that there was nothing left of it, so I didn't bother digging it up. This year it suddenly came out of dormancy after 4 or 5 years, grew about three feet, and produced absolutely gorgeous blooms. Here's one of them.

Bettina is another hybrid tea. I'll post two photos of it -- one showing it from the top and another showing it from the side, so you can see the lighter reverse.

Calico is a hybrid tea I've wanted for years. I finally got it this year from Vintage and it's everything I expected. I really love pink and yellow together in a rose.

I think I've already posted photos of Caribia (aka Harry Wheatcroft) this year, but it's doing its thing again and it's irresistible.

When J&P introduced Catalina, a grandiflora, they had a truly boring photo of it in their catalogue and on their website, so I didn't order it. When I saw it later at a nursery, I couldn't believe it was the same rose. Their picture of it showed a solid-colored light-coral rose, but look at the gorgeous contrast the reverse provides.

Classic Touch, a hybrid tea, is one of those roses you'll only find at the big box stores. It's part of the Certified Roses group and they're usually found only at Lowe's, Walmart, and Home Depot.
