Precious Platinum is looking super--really sublime, Jim!!! Hope that you and your wife are having a wonderful Saturday. I saw on 'The Miracle' thread that you gently told her about Dr. Huey. Been thinking about that today, and really hoping she took it well. Bless her heart!!! Sending many, many hugs her way. :)

Love-Song she took it good. But, not until I showed her proof. lol
Thanks for the comments, Paul, Serena, Debbie, and flaurabunda.

Tonight and tomorrow night is dropping down to 45 degrees here. And the winds have been strong since yesterday. I noticed some trees in our neighborhood are already changing to fall colors. So, not much rose growing season left, i'm afraid.

Yep, not much rose growing season left. Why do we all live in zone 5? hehe

Is it just me, or was anyone else surprised to see a red 'platinum'? I saw the name and expected a lavender or white rose.

Beautiful though, and I love the Outta the Blue and Livin Easy roses too.

Thanks for sharing!
