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.

Thanks!

I like your 'Garden Party' Laura. It's the first rose I grew when I started 25 years ago.
