I guess it's not too early to start the rose alphabet. I've been so busy this yr, I'm surprised I had this many good blooms. The yard was neglected more this yr than ever before. I just don't have the energy to get out there and do all the needed cleanups, even when I do have the time. I hope the coming yr will be better!! Please disregard the ugly weeds and yucky backgrounds that may be found in some of the pics!!

Thank you :) I needed a rose fix. Haven't had anything since early November.

RE: Roses "A"

Beautiful pics, esp the Abbaye de Cluny! I've talked myself out of that one in favor of the Buck Winter Sunset that will hopefully do better here. I still kinda lust after the Cluny though, must be that pesky Medieval studies degree LOL.

RE: Roses "A"

Hi Beth, thanks for starting the rose alphabet, again. You have truly gorgeous, beautiful and very unusual roses. My favorite this time is the very first 'A Whiter Shade of Pale'. Never heard of it before, but I am of to HMF to look it up to get some more info about it. Looking forward to the "B-roses".

RE: Roses "A"

I am going to have to go take some pictures for the alphabet!

Ambridge has about 40 buds right now, Alfie is a baby, and Abraham Darby might have a bud or too.


 o
RE: Roses "A"

Wow! What a lovely treat, after a long "famine".
Now I'm looking forward to the "b".
Thank you for sharing your lovely rose photos.


 o
RE: Roses "A"

I'm decidedly short on roses whose names begin with "a"--but I do have this lovely David Austin rose, a shortie with exquisite blend of pastel shades.

Austin's Anne Boleyn in bud:
Anne Boleyn (Austin)--spring '12

In full bloom:
Anne Boleyn (David Austin rose) 2012

Starting to decline, but aren't those pastel shades lovely!
Anne Boleyn (David Austin rose) 2012

Hope some others post their roses by alphabet also. They are so nice to look at this time of year.

Hi guys! Sorry I didn't get back here sooner. Christmas! Ugh! I can't believe it's almost a new year already!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. And Kate your ANNE BOLEYN is just gorgeous!

Hope you all have a great New Year! I have to apologize. The rest of the alphabet is going to take awhile to pick up. Unfortunately, shortly after I posted this thread, my son re-did my computer, and he was sure he saved all my files on my external hard drive, BUT... somehow the 2012 rose, garden and iris photos did not get saved!! Thankfully, the original photos downloaded from the camera are all there. So, I have to go thru them all and re-tweak them. Over 6000 photos. The real problem tho is IDing them all! About 20% I won't know what they are. It's a bummer... but my own fault. He did ask me to save the files myself, but I was too busy, and asked him to. Just shows ya... you want something done... you do it yourself.


 o
RE: Roses "A"

Oh, Beth, you have our sympathies. All those files! I'd be in despair!

If you don't mind, I'm going to go ahead and start the "b" thread--not that I have that many "b" roses, but there are a few--and hopefully others will chime in with photos while they wait for you to plow your way through all those unmarked photos. Fortunately, they can be added to our alphabet threads any time you want.

Thanks Kate! Go for it! I'll add whatever I can as I get some tweaking done. Oh, I also still have some of the old photos in my Picturetrail albums, so I can add those too.


 o
RE: Roses "A"

OMGoodness!!! I am in such rose withdrawal that I haven't been coming here - it just seems to hurt too much (I know that's kind of ridiculous LOL).
The A roses are sooooo lovely. I can't get over how different All American Magic is from mine.
And I totally sympathize with the computer - same thing happened to me (computer died) and all of my photos had already been downloaded and deleted from my camera. Hubby's going to try to retrieve them. Cross my fingers.

Thanks everyone for the roses!!
Carol

RE: Roses "A"

It's so mood lifting to see the lists begin again. Thanks, Beth, for giving us all a push and starting with the A's. As usual, you have many treasures I've never seen before, and the beauteous Audrey Wilcox is a stunner. I loved seeing the bloom trajectory of Ann Boleyn--so lovely, seil, and no dead heads rolled, either. Diane

RE: Roses "A"

Dark Lady, how do you like your Apricot Impressionist? I need an apricot climber and that is the one I am most interested in but I can't find much information on it.

Absolutely gorgeous roses everyone!


 o
RE: Roses "A"

Karolina, my Apricot Impressionist is only one-year old cutting from Heirloom Roses. Didn't do much growing in this first year, neither it bloomed decently. Much to wait for...
Sorry, I am not of more help, this rose is very new for me.

I have another apricot climber from Heirloom - The Impressionist, also very young plant.
The Impressionist

Beautiful blooms, but just like Apricot Impressionist, it didn't bloom much for me.
I hope to hear some good news from those who have these roses for longer.

 o
RE: Roses "A"

Marina,
I loved seeing the pics again of your Ascot, Astrid, and Augusta--the three A's I must have--two to go. The Ascot photo is one of my favorites on HMF. That big fat Aloha bloom is just stunning--it looks huge. There are so many beautiful apricots here, but Aschermittwock looks a bit like milk chocolate. It's yummy. Thanks for the lovely look at your roses. Diane


 o
RE: Roses "A"

Wow!! I'm amazed by how beautiful these roses are!!! Well done everyone. Wish I could contribute but my pictures aren't available.

Glorious A roses!!

Dang Marina, your roses are phenomenal! I love that odd one, ART NOUVEAU! Looks like a dahlia!

Seil, that ALWAYS A LADY is so cool. I love the pencil-line picotee edge.


 o
RE: Roses "A"

Dark Lady, Love that climber Impressionist!

Seil, I've never seen a real live flower carpet rose, but that one is charming.

Wow, Aptos has an impressive show of blooms, and, yes, cute, too. Ambridge Rose looks so shy and lovely. Thanks for posting, harborrose. Diane


 o
RE: Roses "A"

My only "A"
Alnwick rose.
She didn't put out much blooms ever since I bought her.
I've only gotten four blooms so far.

Is the picture sideways? My apologies, I don't know how to correct this!


 o
RE: Roses "A"

PP1 - you posted this on the wrong thread. This is for last year's alphabet list.
Your The Alnwick Rose is gorgeous!!! Would you repost it on the other thread?
