A lovely and rich selection of W.
It's sad to come to the end of lovely blooms and camaraderie.
Now I'm looking forward to your 2014 blooms.
Thank you, for taking the time to post and share the joy of your lovely blooms.

I have a couple beauties here in the "W"s.

Well Being--Harkness shrub, starts out more reddish-flushed and becomes more yellow, even yellow white, at it matures. Lovely display of colors.

William Shakespeare 2000--the well-known beauty by Austin.

Two of my best!

Oops--meant to comment on a couple of Beth's selections.

Love World Peace--I know most of the "peace" roses, but somehow had never seen that one. Lovely.

Winner's Choice and White Lighting are also very good-looking! White Lighting used to be rather generally available, but I don't remember seeing it much in recent years.

Kate, Your Well Being looks absolutely lovely.

I would also like to thank you, Beth. This has been a life saver this winter. I have loved everyones photos. There is such beauty in this world and so many people on this forum work hard to share this. I hope to take more individual rose pictures so I can add mine next year. Thanks to all that took their time to participate. lesley

I too want to say thank you to everyone... I have looked forward to these alphabet posts all winter long! Sad to see we're so close to the end! Can't wait to see this year's blooms!

Wise Portia is lovely, Beth. World Peace too. Pat, love that We Salute You and Seil, love your Winter Sunset. Shillanorth - Winnipeg Parks is gorgeous! What colour!

I know Wild Blue Yonder has been posted already, but here it is again. I can only hope mine grows into the glory that is yours, Pat!

I'm looking forward to this year's blooms and next year's alphabet - I should have quite a few more to post!

Beth, I like the "dual" coloring of World Peace. You have lots of lovely whites, especially Whisper's creamy porcelain look, and the ruffly Wedding Song.
Kate, the color progression and crisp, luscious petals of Well Being are so appealing.
Pat, Wild Blue Yonder is a favorite of mine, and yours looks like it loves to bloom (more than mine). I like its ruffles and all the "petticoats" on White Licorice, too.
Wild Plum and Winsome do look similar, Seil, with their lovely form and color. I love the subtle color sunset going on in the center of Winter Sunset.
Shillanorth, Winnipeg Parks looks like a happy bloomer with its cheerful color. I'll bet it's really a cold hardy rose.
Redwolfdoc, that's a gorgeous bunch of Wild Blue Yonder. It seems to be a favorite around here (I'll be posting mine in a minute!)
Thanks for a look at all the wonderful Ws. Now it's on to XYZ and one last trip through everyone's gardens. It's been a lovely winter tour for me. Diane
