Not all my roses have started into their second blooming cycle, but a number have and are beautiful. Enjoy!

Chrysler Imperial (HT)--born to be photographed, no doubt about it.
Photobucket

Chrysler Imperial (HT)-- Let's face it--she has no bad side.
Photobucket

Memoire (HT)--a new one in my garden. Seems to be very good on the re-bloom and so far, no big disease problems. I'm liking this one a lot.
Photobucket

Jubilee Celebration (Austin)--another one that the camera just loves.
Photobucket

Gypsy Carnival (HT)--gorgeous blooms, but my camera doesn't do a good job of capturing the yellow at the base of each petal.
Photobucket

Gypsy Carnival (HT)--again, hard to see the yellow at the base, but otherwise a wonderful bloom.
Photobucket

Elle (HT)--as the season progresses, this bloom will get more pastel pink.
Photobucket

Red Intuition (HT)--new this year, and I'm loving this stripey. Seems to be doing well on the re-bloom and disease hasn't been a big problem.
Photobucket

Buff Beauty (hybrid musk)--just one bloom standing there rather exquisitely--not even a typical BB bloom (too apricot)--but there it stands saying "take my picture too." So I did.
Photobucket

Don't know why I didn't take a picture of the new Lady of Shalott (Austin) I stood and admired this morning. Perhaps I'll start a new thread on it tomorrow. : )

A Second Wowwww from me for Chrysler Imperial. But Gypsy Carnival is fantastic too. I can see the yellow just fine!

So pretty! I really like Gypsy Carnival and Chrysler Imperial. Red Intuition is stunning. I had it ownroot last year and it didn't make it through the winter (it was a late season buy, and very tiny band). I think I'll try it grafted next season :)

Thank you for your comments, everyone. I do declare--Chrysler and Gypsy seem to be the big hits of the day. See how red they are blushing with pleasure!!!!

There you go again, teasing me with Red Intuition which I am now completely infatuated with. Chrysler Imperial - one of my favorite of all roses - isn't she amazing?

Buff Beauty steals the show!
Thank you!

I want a stripey rose. Maybe I will try Red Intution. I have Memoire..got it last year. It is very nice

Outstanding Kate !!!!

I added CI this year in a pot on my upper deck but have yet to get anything to compare to yours. Maybe sun would help ? Yours is stunning and gives me hope that it was a wise choice for my spot.
