I'm on a roll. These are in no particular order. I apologize to those who are offended by modern roses. I don't care whether it's old or new, just so it's clean, healthy, vigorous and floriferous.

Plaisanterie. I must learn how to prune it this coming winter.

Francis E. Lester. Wowsers.

"Old Town Novato," found HP.

{{gwi:215181}}
Outta the Blue, a garden workhorse here, but subject to blackspot in wet weather.

{{gwi:215183}}
Thalia, sporting a pink cane. It's a rough shot, taken into the sun.

Darlow's Enigma screening the propane tank

{{gwi:215185}}
The Faun/Bossa Nova, one of the finest small shrub roses I know.

Sophia Renaissance

{{gwi:215187}}
William Allen Richardson. This one doesn't even get fertilizer.

{{gwi:215188}}
"Bermuda Anna Oliver" which finishes as badly as any rose I know but it flowers all the time.

{{gwi:215189}}
Sweet Chariot

{{gwi:215190}}
Tapis Volant

{{gwi:215191}}
Too Cute, another great polyantha.

{{gwi:215192}}
Guadalupe Volunteer, shot with a big drop of water on the lens. Don't try this at home. It's a terrible idea.

{{gwi:215193}}
White Maman Cochet. I adore my Teas, which I've neglected. They deserve better.


Distant Drums


Golden Century, finally coming into its own after 4 years of growing.


And, just for laughs, a volunteer seedling proving the hybrid multifloras love it here and will grow without irrigation.
