The colors your camera picks up are wonderful!
What kind of camera is it?

Is that really Pink Powderpuff?
Your roses are beautiful and the photos are amazing. You seem to have similar taste to mine in roses. My Little Artist mini tree finally expired last season after dwindling for years. I tried to take cuttings but I wasn't successful. Let me know if you would ever consider sharing or trading cuttings at pruning time. I only have luck with cuttings during the winter. This winter was way too dry.

Kathy, I was wondering about that, too. My tag said pink powderpuff, but it doesn't look like it, does it. I'll have to do some research and find out what it is. My camera is a Sony a230, a beginners dslr. But it takes these amazing pictures of roses, better than my more expensive Nikon.

Love them, Pelican! Do you know where you got PPP? Maybe they can help you ID it.

Seil, I don't remember where I got it. IT must have been mismarked, or one of my grandkids changed it. They love doing that to me!

Pelican, are you in Louisiana? I am assuming from the name and zone perhaps you are?

I am in La. and all of mine are budding up something fierce right now. I had a huge softball sized bloom on Bronze Star and a Peace put out several large blooms (but I hardly ever get any pink for some reason!), but most of my others are still forming lots and lots of buds. I counted 17 buds on a Paradise I still have in a pot.

I'm in Carlsbad Ca, on the coast. Not too hot, not too cold.

Carol, I'm still trying to figure that one out, my tag said powder puff, but it's definitely not.
