awww, you should have shared your photos ages ago! your roses look wonderful! I love your beautiful Foolish Pleasure in particular, and I hope that someday my baby climbers will be as rich and as abundant as your Don Juan... Bill Warriner looks like a very sweet rose too.

Actually I'm the one who should be lurking instead of posting my horrendous lopsided garden, but bless everyone here, they tolerate my awful garden and newbie cuckoo ways (I should be hiding my photos, LOL!)...I'm going to post mine

...I meant I will post pretty soon but definitely we have some wonderful photographers (JeffAurora, Masha, CelestialRose) and rosie people here plus it's great to have Jim too, he's a "newbie" but his roses are very! healthy and great! to look at and he doesn't have the unmanageable crazy forest that I've got...I think it's fantastic that everyone is so supportive no matter what! Anyway, keep those photos goin'...

Thanks Phatboyrose for posting your photos. A rose forum friend gave me a young Don Juan rose he had grafted and now I can see what it will look like when it is mature I hope. They look wonderful blooms. My friend said it was a good rose.
I wish we could get Folish Pleasure here. I haven't heard of it here in Australia, but I will look. Is it a newish rose ?

You have 2 I know I want and the 3rd, Foolish Pleasure, is tempting like crazy! Nice photo.

Did you build the structure around Don Juan?

I really like the structure you built. It really seems to go with the rose!!

Foolish Pleasure (never heard of that one) has an amazing number of flowers all crammed in there. Looks like a fantastic rose!!

Third blooming flush already!! Sounds like a rose on steroids!! :) Sounds like a rose to look out for next year (not too likely I'll find one - but hey doesn't hurt to look).
