I Promised Her a Rose Garden (2)

Rose About Face, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 28, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is my second post about the roses in our yard.  You can see the first post by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ at the bottom of this post.

About Face is one of our most unusual roses.  It gets its name from the fact that the outside of the petal is darker than the inside, which is the reverse of most roses.

Aromatherapy rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 27, 2012.

Aromatherapy Rose has a beautiful pink color and a delightful fragrance, which is probably the reason for the name.

Rose Chicago Peace, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 28, 2012.

Chicago Peace is one of several descendants of the Peace rose that we have in our yard.  Chicago Peace has more dark pink and orange than the original Peace rose contained.  Since I grew up near Chicago, it’s always nice to see this rose in bloom.

Double Delight rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 3, 2012.

If I had to pick only one rose as my all-time favorite, it would probably be Double Delight.  The blossoms of this rose have a beautiful form and wonderful color.  The fragrance is also wonderful.

Elle rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 27, 2012.

Elle is one of our newer roses.  It has beautiful pastel-colored blossoms.

    The double Delight is stunning, I don’t remember seeing it before. It reminds me of the peppermint one. The first one is just strange! i love the Chicago Peace an Elle!

    George, mate. I’ve got a job for you.
    Hope on a plane, only about 18 hours, give or take an hour or so and hot foot it here. The Albion Rail Station rose gardens have gone to the “dogs”. You plant and re-arrange and I’ll stand on shotgun duties. We’ll arrange a “feral proof” fence and we might get an award – best rail station garden in Brisbane. Betsy, of course, can come as a superevisor – ha ha.
    Great looking flowers you have.

    What beautiful roses George! It’s very difficult to pick a favorite. They are all absolutely gorgeous.

  11. Maple Lane Says:

    George, These are absolutely beautiful. Betsy is a very blessed woman to have her very own rose garden. Enjoy the weekend.

  12. kathy Says:

    Well George, you know how I feel about roses!!! It’s been such a good year — well until tonight — we’re having t-storms with very heavy downpours. I fear what I’ll find in the morning.

  13. Carletta Says:

    You promised George and you have certainly delivered!
    I’ve tried growing roses and never really succeeded. Yours are beautiful and you make it look easy.
    I’m always amazed that you have so many and know exactly what they are called.
    I just visited Betsy and took ‘the tour’ of your yard – beautiful!

    You are the Rose King! I love them all.
    Each time I look at my rose bush…I wonder…what would George think??? 😉

  15. RedneckRosarian Says:
