  1. Oh, beautiful. Did you grow them? If so, what type & name are they? At our old house, I had 3 different rose beds, all small. I had quite a variety of roses. I think my favorite, though, was the Queen Elizabeth. At this house, I don’t have enough sun, and our soil is only about an inch deep and then we hit solid limestone. Too lazy and cheap to build raised beds. I just grow everything in pots.

  2. Our neighbor brought these roses for Thanksgiving dinner, so I don’t know their name. They grow alongside her property, so we see them every day and they are a very delightful sight – all year long, with this being SoCal.

    What a pity that you can’t grow roses yourself now. I have always loved them and I often went quite out of my way to see gardens famous for their roses. The most impressive of those was the one at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, the former home of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson. You can find a lot of material about Sissinghurst on the Internet – a good link to start is this one: http://www.invectis.co.uk/sissing/
