Four more 'In the rain' pics

This first pic is "Flaming Beauty". Their is a story about this rose I would like to tell. The first time I saw this rose was at a rose show in Macon, Ga. in 1984 where it won Queen of show. That was the most beautiful bloom I had ever seen. Well, because of that bloom I joined our local rose society and later became a consulting rosarian and a rose judge.

The second pic is of "Rephidy" one we have had for 10 years.

">

This third pic is of "Signature" one we have had for 13 years.

">

This last pic is "Special Merit" one we have had since the early 90's.--Ron

I don't know what it is about roses and rain, but they always look stunning!

I think the rain brings out the deeper colors perfectly, Ron!

Rephidy took my breath away. The coloring reminds me of Paradise Found.
