Some of Celestes enabling...

I havent posted many pics this year, as everything is soo young in my new home, plus ive been playing around with a blog... But two roses I purchased due to celestes posts this past year was Rosa Prairie Joy and Rosa Vicks Caprice. So I had to post a couple of pics for them =).

Prairie Joy, I little dissapointed in the graft I recieved from pickering, very very small, the smallest they have ever sent me, even with the two dollar drop in price, they probable shouldnt have sent this, its going to take a couple of years to get up to snuff..., but the rose is still very lovely.

Vicks Caprice, lovely! Thanks Celeste for letting us know about this hardy beauty!

Bush shot, with some top deer damage =).

Keep those enabling shots coming celeste, they do work =).

I think pics with water droplets on the rose like your first pic is awesome. Great pics!

Vick's Caprice is really beautiful. The stripes are so subtle, they don't scream at you like in some modern roses. Both roses are lovely.

I always love it when I learn that someone was paying attention to my posts and wicked enabling!

I got some wimpy bareroots this year from Pickering too, which is not typical of them. But not
to worry, Prairie Joy is going to catch up and in no time
will be a big, blooming machine. You will be amazed at how hardy it is come next spring. This is what you have
to look forward to....

'Vick's Caprice' is a beauty of a rose, I really like mine. Great form, frequent bloom, nice fragrance, and not many thorns.
Your pics look great.
