Oh my gosh, a green rose! Love, love, love Green Romantica! I am astonished about myself, but I have to admit that I like the brown-ish toned roses like Irish Cream, Nimbus, Honey Dijon etc. more and more. Am I getting odd or what? What holds me back from buying them in most cases is, that I find them so hard to integrate harmoniously in the garden, even though the individual bloom might be very interesting and pretty.

Thanks for posting, Beth, your rose collection never ceases to surprise me.

I'm not so much a fan of odd color roses. But I like Vesper's color (kind of a caramel color), and Teddy Bear and the grayed mauve of Nimbus. Gypsy Curiosa is more like my normal taste, and it has great form in your picture. Glad to see you posting minis btw. Not enough pics of them here IMO.....Maryl

My favorite is Vendee Imperiale, but I also really am drawn to Gypsy Curiosa, Vesper and Teddy Bear.

Thanks for keeping posting your glorious pictures when I'm just screaming for spring!! - 35C (-31F) including wind chill right now. Blech winter.

Gorgeous Beth. Can't wait to see my Lavendar Pinocchio again. Currently buried under much snow:) But this rain is helping. Come on spring!

Hope all is well.
