Thanks Girls... Betty this afternoon we found it down near the chook yard and as I creeped up to it as I only had the macro lens on it flew away.. duh

Anyway I did a search and its not a White Heron
Its a Intermediate Egret Ardea intermedia Embarassed Well I think it is

Of course it's an egret, Mary-Anne, which fact didn't even occur to me when you said a white heron. I just thought what a lovely photo it is. LOL.

It's called a labour of love, Gwen, plus a lot of frustration, and cursing about bad weather or aphids. My sister has given me some nice roses but they can't be planted out till next Autumn. I'll have quite a collection by then to go into the ground, given my bad habit of calling in at plant nurseries. LOL. I wish the local one would hurry up with my Vanguard rose, one they are growing from a cutting for me. It's a beauty. This is a photo of it taken last year at the nursery.

My silly camera finally accepted the colour of this Abracadabra rose bud, also the red one, but was refusing to accept blues and pinks today. club


I don't know the name of this one, it was given to me via my sister by a friend of hers who was getting rid of some of his roses. Any idea what it might be, Mary-Anne?

'Tis lovely, I agree, Mary-Anne, a real Picaso sort of rose. I don't mind really if I never get the name of the red rose, I'm still happy to have it.

Gwen's right though, that one is a joy to own. I can't understand Ed ever parting with it. It's only drawback from memory is that it mightn't have a perfume. My favorite of course is Papa Meilland.

Something different now, the rugosa rose Roseraie de l Hay. They say it has a lovely fragrance, so I must take time to check that out. It's only small so will stay potted till next Autumn.

Oh well done Betty! I had 2 Roseraie de L'Hay and 1 died. The other one is doing OK and in a bed now. It had a flower but it was during a few days of rain so I didn't get a picture of it. They are supposed to grow very large Shocked

The flower or the plant grows large? I will put the plant somewhere it can do its own thing perhaps. LOL. Val, you should add your roses to this thread, it's not about my roses but roses down south(from Queensland.) You know I like to use your photo's to make out my shopping list. whistle
You might know, what would make Valencia put out a flower with petals like this?

Betty, I have no idea why Valencia has petals like that. The only thing I've heard of that can cause deformities in roses is if a little weedkiller spray gets blown on to them accidentally.
OK, I don't need much encouragement to put my roses on here! LOL!

Here's a few,

Maurice Utrillo, a new one for me and a fabulous rose (If you like stripies!)


Kronenbourg - one of my favourites


Oklahoma - tall and fragrant


Big Purple, a beauty.


Rose of Narromine. Another newie and I'm in love with it.


Camp David, a lovely red.

It will have to remain a mystery, Val, I don't use weed killer.
Where are those photo's? Laughing Don't want to be pushy(much). Darn, you just beat me to it!

I only have Oklahoma out of that group. Rose of Narromine is lovely, I'd kill to have the striped Maurice Utrillo too. My Camille Pissarro is flowering and my camera can't cope with the stripes unfortunately. Some of the striping on yours looks tulip-like. Do Kronenbourg and Camp David have good perfume?

Very pretty Val I wish banana banana

I like the Rose of Narromine but I think everyone knows my Favourite colour for roses is orangery yellow colours..

I only have Camp David out of all of those, make that I did have it, as it and my favourite rose Just Joey died this year from that terrible scale they got.. Crying or Very sad

Just one question about Camp David Val mine was a very dark red bordering towards the black as a bud, is it your camera that makes it look pink Question

And these pics have been on before whistle

Yes MA, it's the camera and the light that makes CD look light, it's darker than that.

Betty, Kronenbourg doesn't have a perfume that I can detect, but Camp David does.

Gorgeous photos, MA!
