Smorgisburg of roses! Very nice roses you have Arcus_85!

Very impressive. I ordered Charles de Gaulle for next year, hope it turns out as nice as yours.

Gorgeous photos!! Love that MAHARASHI! I just ordered SNUFFY. Looks like I'll love it! I have to assume you must spray? Your blooms are all perfect. Unlike my thrips-ridden ones. Thanks for the beautiful photo show!

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Thanks ladies and gents. I love sharing all my hard work with you guys. I usually spend about eight to ten hours a day out with the roses. There's always something to be done. I'll work on getting you some garden shots here soon. With the exception of 3 or 4, all of these roses were new this spring. So I'm just now starting to get size on my bushes and full flushes. Go figure, winter is just around the corner.
Carol- Rossi does have a smell. Sometimes it's quite intense. Very fruity! And Uncle Joe is quite the showoff. Not kidding when I say apple sized blooms...
Beth- Oh I feel your pain! Thrips are enemy number 1 in my garden. And if you start asking other rosarians, many of them will tell you they are their biggest issue. Yet not many of them seem to have a solution. I'm experimenting with something new right now. Sprays just only go so far (which is not very far at all), and they can be quite expensive as you all know. I'll fill you all in and post the results when I've figured out if it's working. And oh, you will LOVE Snuffy! That wasn't even a particularly spectacular bloom for her. She's breathtaking!

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Oh and Beth, I forgot to mention. I remember you saying you thought Snuffy was a weird name for a rose. Well I recently spoke with John Smith and asked him why he named the rose Snuffy. He said it was his father's nickname (after the comic book character). Dina Gee (pronounced Deena G), one of John's other amazing hybrid teas, is named after his mother. :0)

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Wow - Rossi looks fantastic - AND - it's fragrant. Not bad for a yellow. I might have to get that one if it's ever at Pickering or Pallantine.

Uncle Joe is another one I'd like - but it looks like one that would need a lot of heat? We only get to about 80 here. Once in a while maybe 90.

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Ohh so sad here, Arcus_85. There are too many photos on this one thread for me to see the show. I know you are busy, but could you somehow divide these up on different threads? Pretty, please?

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Wonderful--they are all wonderful!


RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Great roses, great photos of them. I love them all!

But Snuffy makes me remember a childhood dog who hated me after I left for college. He would guard his biscuits and growl at me when I came home for the holidays and heaven forbid that I would point at my mother's feet. He sounded like he'd kill me!

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Thank you for the beautiful photos! Are the colors true?....or are they enhanced?....I have about half of these roses, and I photograph them every day....this is my first blooms in my new garden and the novelty hasn't worn off yet. I don't think my camera is as good as yours, and the reds come out quite dull, and not at all like the real color. I'm especially interested in Kardinal and Veteran's Honor, as I have these on order.

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

Wow! I really like Snuffy and Pink Promise1

RE: 42 more reasons to LOOOVE roses

All are very nice. Thanks for the eyeful.
