Haven't posted any pictures for a while, although took a lot of them.

Please take a look at some roses blooming now in my garden (they are in the third flush now)

Thank you very much for looking,
Marina

Bon Chance. Very nice neat rose, quite healthy without spraying

One of my favorite English Roses - Potter and Moore. Blooms a lot for me

Larissa - outstanding shrub. Beautiful bush, lots of small exquisite flowers, very healthy

Jeanne Moreau - great 'white' rose, lovely fragrance

Another English Rose - The Pilgrim. Love the color

Pierre Gagnaire has very nice color combo - love the pinkish reverse

The Wife of Bath

Gorgeous flowers of Augusta Luise. So glad I had a chance to buy this one from Hortico a few years ago

Colette

Teasing Georgia

Hermosa. The picture might be deceptive - the blooms are small, may be 1 1/2" only :)

Baptiste Lafaye, great polyantha, superb bloomer

One of my favorite climbers - White Cap

Not so ofter mentioned English Rose - Swan

Lovely post. A few roses I have never seen before.
They all look so lush and healthy .

Does anybody know how to get rid of that, annoying,
new advertising bar, that has appeared at the bottom of the page this morning?

Such exquisite roses photographed perfectly. I would love to try growing Potter & Moore, and Augusta Luise--has it disappeared from commerce? Colette is new for me this year, and I am so pleased with her. It's really impossible to pick a favorite from these gorgeous photos. Please keep posting. Diane

To get rid of that annoying ad at the bottom of the page, google "Adblock"--it's free and will rid you of all annoying ads. Just add it to your computer--simple directions to follow.

Lovely pics--so nice browsing these beauties. I'm really taken with Bon Chance, except I wanted an Austin or an OGR for that spot--but Bon Chance might be just what I need. Hmmm--thinking.

I love Bon Chance and Swan! I've looked at Swan a dozen times, but yours is the first picture that I've liked it it...very interesting form!

I also have Larissa, its just such a great little rose! Its a little bloom just packed with petals!

Your roses are beautiful, I am adding more to my ever growing wishlist :S lol

Thanks a lot, everybody!

Lesley, I have a little over 1000 varieties of roses, some of them in multiples, about 2000 bushes total. As for the feeding, I fertilize SOME roses once a year with a handful of 10-10-10. And I don't spray.

Diane, I was wrong. I checked Hortico site and they still list Augusta Luise.

Beautiful as always Marina! I like your SWAN. I think it's not seen much because it's not readily available anymore. Wish I had gotten one.

Thank you, Beth! Yes, I was lucky to get this one while it was still offered here. Very nice rose, and a good bloomer, too.

I really like your Swan too!! It's breathtaking. I usually don't like cream/white roses...but yours is amazing!! I also really like your Jean Moureau!! Stunning!!

All of your roses are very, very pretty. Good job!
