National Rose Month: Memorial Day



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This beautiful rose is very appropriately named. It blooms for the first time right around Memorial Day. It has a nice fragrance to go along with this beautiful pink color.

This rose is so gorgeous. If only one could smell it online. What type of camera do you use? I'm planning to get a new one.I'm inspired by all the beautiful photos found in blogs. Happiness is a lovely picture and sharing it, right?

I'm so envious! My hybrid teas STILL haven't bloomed -- although I'm hopeful. I've fed them, and more importantly, we've been getting more sunny weather. We'll see.

What a beautiful color, and you got a bud in the shot, as well. I was just asking Betsy about tearoses, how to tell the difference. I think I know, Phil doesn't. I took some pictures that I will be posting within the next few days, and will be asking you if they are tearoses and how to tell the difference. Be prepared for the pop quiz, 'cause when it comes to roses, you're the man!!!

I've always said the red roses are my favorites, but I just might have to change my mined. I love this pink color.

Roses are the best.
I found your picture and comment about the Tellico river very intriguing. One of my favorite trout flies is called the Tellico. Now I know whence its origin. Thanks

Another lovely rose for today. I am glad you know the names of yours. I do not know any of mine. I just enjoy them.
