Wine & Roses  
I'm looking for a rose to put under my tub window and came across there. Interested in finding out what they smell like!

Those are lovely! I especially like the sangria color. :)

It is very pretty.

Have you decided what color you'd like?

I'll probably wait and see what our local nursery has.

How many types of roses do you have so far?

Lord, I'm not sure, just lots. Glenn loves roses and has them all over, and he buys me and mum new rose plants every year. Last year, he got me a rose called 'hot chocolate' which is really lovely. There was a rose I saw at the botanical gardens in Memphis at the Road Trip called Black Magic hat I loved, and he got me that one.

Do you have pics posted here or elsewhere? I'd love to see them. :D

Nope, but I can take some this time around :)

Oh my dear, if you are going to plant roses go with a David Austin type. Not only do they have amazing (and strong) fragrance but they are also very nice bushes as well. Try Evelyn or Mary, for a pink, Graham Thomas for a yellow, Glamis Castle for a white, and there are many many many more.

(I was a professional landscaper for 18 years. Roses and perennials were my specialties.)

No, we aren't just starting, we have many dozens of different roses on the property. It's one of my brother's hobbies.

I like the Cab Sav, but I'm a sucker for the Blue Moon Rose http://www.therosecompany.com.au/top_ten/blue_moon.html

That's so pretty!
