Hey everyone! The roses are starting to slow down for the season so I thought I'd do a little post for you all. If I keep getting blooms, I'll keep posting!

All gorgeous!!

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Arcus_85 - So glad you won Queen of Show with your Veterans Honor, very beautiful. Your roses are lovely!

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Congrats for winning a queen. All your pictures are quite nice. Thanks for the look.

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Lovely blooms and photos.
The dark background makes the roses outstandingly beautiful.

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Hello! Gorgeous pics. I love that Stainless Steel! Help Me Find lists it as hardy to zone 7; how's your success been with it here in zone 5? Do you give it winter protection? Where I can get one? :)

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Oh!!! GASP!!! WOW!!!
You're roses are always uber fantastic. Stunning!!! Your second picture of Uncle Joe is beyond beyond.
I am in awe. :)

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

That first picture looks like a catalog cover. Wow what a rose

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Gorgeous show roses.

Someday I need to see Paradise in real life--can't decide if it attracts or repulses me--


RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Thanks everyone! It's been a crazy first year exhibiting! I recently wrote an article on winning my first district queen and my experiences exhibiting my first year. If any of you are interested in reading it here's the link:

Redwolfdoc-This is my first year with Stainless Steel so I can't speak from experience about overwintering. I do however, have many rose friends in the area who have grown it for many years in zone 5b with no problems. I got two this year and fell in love. Perfect form. Perfect scent. So I just ordered two more for next year. I believe Weeks is carrying it this year. I ordered mine from Regan's Nursery.

Kate-Paradise is one of my favorite mauves. It's a pretty heavy bloomer and always has something in the works. If you like purples, I think you'd like it. :0)

RE: My Mid-October Lovelies

Such Purr-fection!!!! And congrats on your 'Queen of Show'!!!
