I've been collecting pictures all month and I've finally gotten enough for a nice long post.

Bishop Darlington

New Dawn

Just Joey


Sheila's Perfume


White Eden

Dream Come True

I've had lots of spiders make their homes on my rose bushes, but never inside a rose before... at least not that I noticed.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful pics of wonderful roses, peachymomo! I especially admire the elegance of New Dawn! Too bad that this rose is not supposed to grow well in my area.

Your White Eden is so lovely, seeing it makes me want to grow this rose in my own garden, again. I am curious how is the repeat of White Eden and the "regular" Eden for you? Is there any difference in terms of the repeat between the two?

Thanks for the photo treat!

I have Eden in a 10 gal pot and white eden in the ground, and so far the white eden has been much happier and had more blooms and more flushes of blooms (3 as opposed to 2) but I can't say if it's the rose or the planting spot that made the difference. Personally I like the white eden more.

I'm glad you all liked my photos :o)

Well it was worth the wait, all of your roses look so good, what is the bud with the spider in it? Shiela's Perfume is very beautiful!

Very beautiful. The inner petals on Bishop Darlington appear to be beckoning us closer. What an awesome effect!

The spider is in a Dream Come True bud, and I think that Bishop Darlington wants us to get closer so that we can smell his wonderful fragrance :o)

Wow - I've never seen Shiela's Perfume look so radiantly wonderful. The outlining on the petals is fantastic!!

What's your last rose? It's very striking!!
