Here are a few of the roses in bloom this afternoon, starting with this spray of Tuscan Sun, showing hues of apricot and peach.
And Scentimental, looking like a big piece of peppermint candy.
Opening night is a real beauty, rising tall in the back of the border, and enjoying a little afternoon shade.
Nearby is this Purple Tiger.
I'm pretty sure this is Gold Medal.
And right beside it is Midas Touch.
A little farther down the garden path is Champagne Cocktail. It's behaving a bit differently than last year: more solid rather than stippled coloration.
Royal Wedding is just around the corner.
And across the path stands Sixteen Candles.
Next to it is Rio Samba - a bit faded in the August sun.
English Garden can be found by the iron gate.
And up in the rock garden lies Moore's Striped Rugosa.
There are two others that I brought inside to photograph. Here's Gemini.
And finally, Blush Flower Circus.
