Here are a few pictures I took this morning in the garden. The colors are getting much more vibrant in the cooler weather. However, with all the rain recently, the weeds have gotten out of control again :( That will be next week's project!

They do have vibrant colors, Tammy! That's the orangest Oranges and Lemons I've ever seen. My cousin has it and hers are always more yellow than orange. That cluster on Pomponella looks more like a polyantha than a floribunds spray. How big are the blooms?

Thanks Beth and Seil :)

Seil, My Oranges and Lemons is in partial shade, so it stays pretty dark (it ended up in partial shade accidentally after my Carolina Jesamine took over my deck!). This cluster actually has a bit of red it it...very differern!

As for Pomponella, it reminds me of a polyantha also. The blooms are slightly larger than most of my poly's, but still on the small side (maybe 1.5 inches across). It lacks that pymamid shape cluster form that many of my polys have though. It puts on a good show a few times throught the summer, but the weight of the blooms always makes the canes droop unfortunetly. Still a really cool and unique rose :)

Those saturated colors are glorious, but I also like the subtlety of Moonstone and Antico Amore. I'm very impressed with the hips on Carefree Spirit,too. Thanks for posting these pics. You really have a great variety of roses! Diane

I love the mixture of pink shades on your Pomponella. Something that would have visual interest from far away too.

Your Antico is my fav of your pics. What a lovely, lovely rose. Is there any scent to it?

Pumpking Patch is amazing. I love your picture of it.
Talk about saturated orange!!

I love your Baron Prevost. That's an OGR isn't it? Looks so beautiful!!!
Thank you so much!!
