|I am really pleased that Dave added the generic "Rose" modification to the database were jumbles of rose pictures can go. I now have a home for my pictures of mixed roses. I just added a ton of pictures. Now to wait until they get approved. I more often take pictures of rose beds than I do closeups of one type of rose. Even closer many of them flop all over each other and what you get is a picture of a riot of colors.|

|Hurray! My pictures were just approved so in the database they go.|

|I just approved that ton of pictures. They're amazing, awesome, inspiring, and spectacular. Everyone should go straight to that page to look at all of Rita's photos.|

|Rita's roses are to drool over.. She has some of the prettiest roses ever. Seriously. I'm turning green with envy over here. |
Roses are one of my passions! Just opened, my Etsy shop (to fund my rose hobby)! http://www.etsy.com/shop/Tweet...

|Those photos would make anyone want to grow roses. (If only we all had Rita's skill.) Beautiful!|

|Would the generic rose database be the place to put pictures of rose seedlings that we bred, but never bothered to register?|

I do have a few HTs but most of my roses are Floribundas or what they stick into the shrub rose catagory. Very few Austins here. I did try more than I have but got rid of most of them. Instead I have lots of J&P Floribundas and lots of Clements roses. Gosh, I just love Clements roses.
Have to spray here with systemic fungicide in the humid east coast or my roses would be a blackspot mess. Every two weeks starting from just after the leaves appear. I also feed them with Rose Tone and toss out Alfalfa pellets in the spring. That would be the only time I use the bagged fertilizer. Instead I use Neptunes Liquid Seaweed Fertilizer every two weeks until the spring flush starts. You can mix it with the fungicide when you are going to spray. After the spring flush I don't use the Neptunes as often and by end of August I don't use any fertilizer.
Thats it. Really they look so pretty in bloom because the roses are jammed really, really close together in clusters.

|Tabby, the seedling photos can go there, and I've approved a seedling photo you submitted, but they're going to get lost among other things, I'm afraid, because the captions don't show up until you click on the photo.|
You should start a blog and post the photos and information there. It seems like the ideal place for things like that.
