Oooooh--I'm so envious. Actual blooms! And they are beautiful, of course! It will probably be a couple more months before there are any in my garden.

Cool rose lurker there, also.

I'm so "glad" it's cool and rainy, as it's producer those lovely blooms. Haven't seen a post of Kentucky Derby for a long time.
Boomer looks like a good rose guardian.
Lovely post.

Thank you for the nice remarks.

@ Inga - I love Kentucky Derby! To this day it is still my favorite red rose. Irregardless of the temperature outside it retains a true cherry red and has the most delicious fruity smell. My Mr. Lincoln and Chrysler Imperial tend to take on a more strawberry red from the Florida heat.

@ lesmc - I'm torn on whether that's really Tiffany or not. I'm so used to Tiffany being pink with yellow undertones but so far this new Tiffany I picked up has produced more peaches-and-cream-like blooms. I'm not complaining though I love the petal structure of these blooms!

I think Boomer is my favorite Rose.

Kidding aside, I think I like Paradise Found and Playboy best. Playboy looks like it's center is glowing.
