I Promised Her a Rose Garden (6)

Sweet Freedom rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 20, 2012.

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

This is the sixth post on the roses in our yard.  The previous posts can be found by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ below.

We haven’t had much success growing white roses — we’ve lost more white roses than all other colors combined.  But Sweet Freedom (above) is a rose that keeps blooming for us year after year.

Tahitian Sunset rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 30, 2012.

This multi-colored rose is named Tahitian Sunset.  I haven’t been to Tahiti, but I imagine that a sunset on that island contains these colors.

Tiffany rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 3, 2012.

Tiffany was new in our garden last year.  It has a soft pink blossom with a hint of yellow at the base.

Touch of Class rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 28, 2012.

Touch of Class is an elegant-looking rose which we have enjoyed for a couple of years now.

Wildfire rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 25, 2012.

Wildfire has an orange-red color that is close enough to Tennessee Orange to become a favorite with Betsy.

    You present the beautiful roses.
    I wonder which one is most beautiful?
    All are lovely.

    I think there is a book in you, George. I understand you can make a picture book rather easily with your Mac. It would be nice to have. Now, I’m thinking two books; one on roses and one on waterfalls.

  11. ZielonaMila Says:

    Beautiful flowers, very much I like roses. I am greeting

  12. Ginny Says:

    Each one was my favorite till I saw the next! But I think it has to be the first one, or Tiffany, or maybe Tahitian…

  13. Mary Says:

    You two have so many beautiful roses! I love that first shot of the white one.

    George, mate.
    You astound me with your knowledge of the names of all these different roses. I think I like the ” Tahitian Sunset rose ” the most,
    but it sure is a hard choice as they are all so magnificent.
    I can’t recall roses growing in either Hawaii, Bali, New Caledonia, Guam or Papua New Guinea which are all tropical areas, Tahiti is a bit further south from the equator but is still referred to as tropical.
    Maybe one of your viewers might be able to add clarification?

    Anyhow I don’t think if they do grow in the places above, they would look anywhere as good as your efforts/results at Fairfield Glade, TN.
    You surely did live up to your promise of ” I promised her a Rose Garden” . You are a very lucky lady, Betsy.

    Your roses are breathtaking, as always! All the more so because my black thumbs prevent me from growing them myself!

    I’ve been catching up on blog posts after 9 days without internet access. I particularly loved your anniversary post – Congratulations!!

  16. Rose Says:

    Oh, Wow! Tiffany is such a lovely girl…I always think yellow roses and red roses are my favorite, but then I see one like her and I just am not so positive any more.

  17. Cheryl Says:

    One word: GLORIOUS!! What beauty!

  18. ladyfi Says:

    What stunning rose garden you have!

  19. Sartenada Says:

    I am admiring and admiring Your rose collection. This time my favorite is Tahitian Sunset rose. Never been there and that’s why my interest.

  20. Leovi Says:

    Beautiful photos as always. Excellent flowers, I envy your garden. Greetings and happy weekend.
