I keep forgetting to check back here. Busy busy busy! First of all the pink rose in question ended up being SHEER ELEGANCE. When I took the pic I was approaching it from the backside of the bed, and it appeared it was in BARBARA BUSH's spot, but when I went out the next day and looked from the front of the bed, I realized it was SE. Also, it had changed color and become more two-toned. Didn't get around to taking a pic tho. But that settles that.
Shyam, I do not even have QUEEN ELIZABETH. That is one of my least favorite roses ever. That along with TROPICANA. And Dude if you are capable of having chickens, OMG! You should!! I can't tell you how much I love my chickies! They are the lights of my life! Sure, I gotta pick up poop several times a day, and clean the coop, and make their fermented "mush" (grains), and chop up their veggies, and take care of them when they get sick, etc etc... But I love it! They're the most spoiled rotten birds (other than my hummies). Those girls are so much fun. I love to just go sit out there with them and watch them interact and make their silly sounds, and play around, and occasionally have one sit on my lap. They bring me more joy than even my grandkids! LOL They're so entertaining! Wonderful stress relievers! They got me thru losing my real job, and then losing my mom. I really seriously don't know what I would do without them now. And the eggs are a nice bonus! If we actually lived out in the boonies, I'd have peacocks, ducks, and who-knows-what else!! Oh my son and his wife have ducks. They have Muscoveys and they just got some Mallards. They apparently have really good eggs. They sell them to their friends. And the ducks eat flies and mosquitoes. They keep them with their chickens. I've thought about getting some myself, but right now the chickies are good enough for me. But really... if you can have chickens... I highly recommend it! The only thing is, they can be as addicting as the roses! LOL
Frank, your roses are lovely! Love that BROCELIANDE. but... are you sure that's BLOSSOMTIME? Doesn't look like it to me. It's a light pink with a darker pink reverse.
