Wildfire Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Our Wildfire rose still looks pretty 'hot' to me, even when covered with raindrops. Betsy and I love the orange-red color of this rose. Wildfire seems like a very appropriate name.

It's perfect with the raindrops! Ahh... rain, does it still exist? I haven't seen any in well, months!
Blessings!

The rose itself is feeling very hot.

It is sweating.

I miss read the line and I saw, "Betsy looks pretty hot to me" (I bet she does too) Love the colour of the rose.

Very nice. I'm curious how many varieties of roses you maintain, George. I do miss growing them now as we live in the woods here int he North Country....

Cant beat a rose with raindrops on George.

I always love your rose photos with water on them.

We planted a rose about this color. At least it started out this color and over the years it turned a deep, dark burgundy color. No clue why that happened. Maybe the soil and our lack of knowledge with roses?

That is the perfect name for this beauty! Love the raindrops too. :)

The colour does look like a hot flame.It is so pretty covered in raindrops.

You would almost expect to see steam coming off from that blossom, rather than beading.
