I'm doing a repeat here seeing Valencia's second bud opened and is an even nicer/better colour.

There could be an onslaught of rose photo's as around about Cup Day they should be at their peak. Here is the David Austin rose, Charles Rennie McIntosh.

La Sevillana has been flowering a while now but is a red my camera finds hard to capture. I fluked this one, thank heaven.

Dr Huey. Used at rootstock but I think a nice rose anyway.

Tutu Mauve, but looking a bit pink. Strange.

Tradescent, a David Austin rose from memory.

Burgundy Iceberg, or Burg Berg as Cheryl called it, actually proved to be Blushing Pink Iceberg.

Some lovely looking roses there Betty.. Charles Rennie McIntosh is one I have never heard of.. Goodness you have so many, no favourites here though I do like the colour of Alfred Sisley.

Speaking of root stock I have the other red one coming up the name slips my memory at present, its coming from where Just Joey was planted, Double Delight, and another Double delight..

Alfred Sisley is lovely, I hope it survives to bloom in better seasons. Here is the rose planted at the head of Susie's grave - Best Friend. (Susie was our cattle dog put down due to bone cancer). I love this rose!



This is the David Austin rose at the head of Ben's grave - Glamis Castle(him being a scottish breed and all. winky-winky )



This is another David Austin, Pegasus, but I thought it should be more apricot in the centre. scratch It may alter as it matures. This will be at the head of Tammy's grave when we finally lose her.

This photo does NOT do this beautiful rose justice. This is Makybe Diva, named after the champion mare that won 3 Melbourne Cups. It is a perfect bud and just holds its form to the end. Great rose for cutting and is doing real well under these terrible conditions.

I remember Makybe Diva very well, we were living here then but still had a interest in the two cups, and its a lovely rose too.

Betty what a lovely ending for your friends that's the way my ashes are going under a rose bush I have already instructed my daughter and I think the rose bush will be either Just Joey or Julia's Rose..

Glamis Castle is a lovely looking rose also a fitting place to be planted and Pegasus is lovely also, hey they all are.. I love you

That half of the orchard is now my angel garden, Mary-Anne, where I hope all my dogs will be buried, except for earlier dogs that were buried in other spots on the property of course.
I think Perkin's rose will be New Duet. My all time favorite cattle dog has a grevillea on her grave, which I will remove and replace with either Shady Lady(her show name) or Bright Eyes(one of her nicknames). Have to think of suitable roses for 3 others out there, Candy, Beejay and Jedda. I still have rose beds to dig on 3 sides of the area yet, a job for next Autumn. I wouldn't mind if my ashes were just scattered out there. I'd go with Just Joey if I was you, Julia's Rose can be fragile.

I laughed when I read that Betty.. Very Happy
Just Joey died this year from the wet
Julia's Rose stood in water logged soil for many weeks and survived.

What a interesting sign I love you for a wonderful garden.

Our last two dogs were left at the Vets, kinder they said.. Crying or Very sad

I don't think I could ever leave a dog at the vet's clinic. Over 34 years we have buried 12 much loved dogs here.

Now, I wanted this rose so much after seeing photo's in the Treloar's catalogue and it certainly lived up to them. This is the beautiful David Austin rose ,Belle Story.

Two tonight, though knocked around slightly by our wild weather.
New Duet. I don't think this rose is the colour shown in the Treloars catalogue so must look it up on Help Me Find to know whether it's just the weather which has altered it, or bad photography.


Cabana.

Abracadabra is flowering too, Mary-Anne, but only small flowers so far and my camera had a hissy fit when asked to photograph such a different rose. LOL. Glad you liked them, Gwen, and Mary-Anne, I agree, Cabana is camellia-ish. Ghislande de Feligunde is blooming too but a tiny flower so far. Hope that improves. It's a rambler.

Yes Betty but only a couple of spits Crying or Very sad

Though they did say we will get thunderstorms either late this afternoon or this evening and the humidity is hanging very heavy here today, would you believe its hotter here than where Gwen is in Far Nth Qld..

I did take the camera out before as we have this White Heron that has started visiting the garden, three days in a row its been here now and twice this morning

I took this one late on Thursday sorry the pic is dark..
White Heron it was doing a dance and wiggling its bottom. laughing wit tears laughing wit tears laughing wit tears

That is a beautiful photo, Mary-Anne, it's like you've asked would it mind going and posing in the white daisy. Well done, a good capture.

Must get offline now, we're havingm a storm.
