Some of my Pretties
Here are some of my roses in the backyard in bloom. The Kennedy, top photo, hasn't bloomed this well in a long time. Mr. Lincoln is the red one, which always produces the most beautiful blooms and they are generally massive, it is one of my favorite roses.
The Noisette, Madame du Alfred Carriere is dead. The drought killed it. Poor rose. I miss it terribly but, there was nothing I could do to save it. I watered it and the amount of heat did it in. I guess Texas weather was just too much for it.
These two roses are hybrid teas. I don't spray them, I just water them occasionally and give them some plant food every now and then. They are fine.
