Back from the surgery, posting rose photos:)

Although feeling very weak after my surgery, I could not stop myself from taking a walk through the garden and taking a few photos of what is in bloom now.

Please take a look, I hope you enjoy my roses (sure, I do!:))

Marina, let me first say how happy I am that you are home and have the surgery behind you. Don`t try and do too much, but a gentle slow walk try your beautiful roses must be fine! You must have the most glorious collection of roses. It still slays me that you don`t fertilize your roses!! They are so full of blooms with lovely foliage. The B d Guillot red rose is my favorite, but they are all lovely. Thank you for sharing your roses with me and please take care of yourself. Fall roses are so special and I want you to enjoy ALL of yours. Lesley

Oh my, what a beautiful collection of roses, every one of them. And so many that I had never seen or even heard of, which made it a very special treat to view your photos. I had to pick a favorite, which was difficult, but as a purple addict, I was blown away by the beauty of Princess Sibella de Luxembourg.
I wish you a speedy recovery, and I'm sure all the surrounding beauty of your roses will help to accomplish just that. Diane

Gorgeous stuff as always Marina! You must live in the best place in the country for roses. They always look so perfect, with no disease and lots of blooms! Lucky you! Hope you recover from the surgery quickly.

Thank you very much, Beth, Lesley, Diane and Ron!
Lesley, I can not say 100% that I don't fertilize. I fertilize some (may be 30%) with a handful of 10-10-10 per bush in Spring.
I believe, I have really nice native soil here (never done soil test). My main problem is watering. If only I could water all my roses, oh, that would make such a difference!

Diane, you are so right! My garden keeps me getting up from the bed and moving around. Not much done during my walks through the garden, only light deadheading:)

Gentle rosing is the best thing for you! Gentle wandering around is peaceful and just enough activity.

I've never been a fan of green toned roses, but your Lovely Green is mesmerizing to look at.

They're all so unique and lovely. Thanks for showing us your roses!!

Marina, I'm guessing you might live in Europe, perhaps in Germany? I wish you a speedy recovery. Your roses are exquisite and very much the kind I would choose. Since I live in a warm/hot area it's mostly tea roses, chinas and small Bourbons for me. What a delight to see beautiful roses that are new to me. Thank you for taking the trouble to show them to us.
