Thank you for all the nice comments everyone. Smiling

It's "Just Joey" and was planted ~1996.

I looked high & low for the original image in all the October folders, but could not find the original pic. D'Oh!
BTW, one of my New Year's resolutions is to always keep the original with the banner, just in case.

Very nice banner, Cal! Thumbs up Thumbs up

I don't have enough roses and may soon start collecting a few. The DW mentioned something about a rose garden. So that to me sounds like permission. Whistling

So beautiful! I didn't know roses could be so beautiful in Oct.
You don't kick walls down, you pull the nails out and let them fall.

Our "winter" is more like early summer this year. Only a week of cold, and only one good rain.
The roses haven't gone dormant, but cut them back anyway after the last bloom cycle.

But have been amazed how long some have bloomed.

I've been wanting to put up a slideshow of one rose in particular whose blooms have lasted
at least a week.....not new blooms, but the same bloom. I don't know the name so hope someone
will ID it, too.........should be ready by tomorrow.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the banner. Thank You!
