A few more.....with the darker background.
Hot Cocoa, looking more like it should:
Wow- Garden Party is so delicate.
They look great flaurabunda!
Thanks! I'm going to have to break down & get a tripod at some point. My hands are just getting too shaky lately.
I see no signs of shaky paws in these lovely pictures. They look perfect.
Kitty, that's because I took about 60 pictures and only kept these few. :) Thanks!
Garden Party is beautiful. Mine mildewed so badly (no spray) that i let it go. Prettier than Peace in my garden.
My next camera is going to be stabilized! You did great.
Beautiful! I had GP many yrs ago. It was a nice rose. I dunno why I never got another one.
The blooms are awesome, but it's an older rose and doesn't have the beautiful habit that some of the newer ones do. It & Tropicana are the gangliest of the ones I have right now; they are also the oldest. (Not in my garden, but by introduction.)
It has a habit of throwing canes every which way & shirking off foliage at the bottom, even when it's not suffering from any blackspot. I'll have to keep a better eye on her next year and maybe pamper her a little more.
I like your 'Garden Party' Laura. It's the first rose I grew when I started 25 years ago.
