Oh, my goodness Lana, more unique roses to fall in love with! Imperatrice Farah is so gorgeous with that tangerine-pink edging and flawless form. I love your Purple Tiger's flare and uniqueness. Graham Thomas looks amazing and so rich against the deep velvet backdrop of those purple flowers-absolutely stunning like some majestic opera of colors.

Your Distant Drums, on the other hand, are like a ballet-soft dreamy and romantic. I tried to describe to Jim that Distant Dreams really needs to go against softer pale colors and that it is a rose that looks like a waterlily or very delicate lotus blossom. And your Distant Drums becomes for me that watercolor impressionistic painting. A masterpiece in the garden...

We certainly have some talented photographers here.

I especially like the combo of Distant Drums against the white hydrangea.

Wow!!! Purple Tiger is exquisite!!!! I think the downside of PT is that it's stingy?? Is that true?? Otherwise - droooool - what a rose!!

The blue with Graham Thomas is so stunning. Such saturated colors together look amazing!!

Imp. F. looks like a work of art and I love the colors.
