Winsome is a looker! I really like its deeper pink/purple shade. Also like Verdun's little globular bloom...very cute!

Thanks everyone! It's been a really difficult year for getting pics of RdV. Her blooms don't last long to begin with but this year with the heat and all it seems like they only last a moment and phffft...gone! But I go out to take photos sometimes 3 times a day so eventually I got a good one, lol! I'm sure my neighbors think I'm nuts. I tried to explain once to someone who stopped that the blooms don't stay the same and you have to catch them at their best or it's gone forever. And then the light is always changing too so that changes the picture as well. I don't think they really got it though.

Wow, great pic of Paradise. I love the vibrant colors of all the blooms.

Thanks, Krista!

I love the purples, too, especially Angel Face. It's one of the few roses whose blooms stand up to 100 degrees day in and day out and about zero humidity that we have here. I sympathize with you trying to take photos of these beautiful blooms. I've given up for the time being. Thanks for posting your lovely pics. Diane

Oh!!! I love your Reine de Violette!!!!!! Wow!!!
Angel Face is a stunner too!!!
Winsome is lovely - that's a mini isn't it? So refined looking.
These should be in a rose calendar!!!

Love these pics--but I must admit that on my computer, they appear to be more rose colored rather than purple--but still lovely.

Thanks, Diane! AF is lovely but a terrible spot magnet too. But it was one of Mom's so it stays.

Thank you, Carol! Yes Winsome is one of the new minis I got this spring. So far it has out performed everything else! I hope it winters well.

Thanks, Kate, and you're not seeing things, lol. A lot of the "mauve" roses are more pink than purple most of the time. Only Angel Face and Paradise are consistently purple and never get that hot pink color the rest do. Even RdV will look pink sometimes. And I think this summer's high heat has made some of them even pinker than usual.
