Thank you for sharing these with us Cindy! I love roses. Many of the old China roses bud one colour, bloom another and then fade to a darker shade.I hope to someday have a garden full of them since unlike the hybrid teas, the old Chinas are well adapted to the ridiculously hot, humid climate of the Southeastern United States. I bet Paul Neyron would thrive in your climate!

“I came to admit I was powerless over”…..roses! (Please click to enlarge).
Which is why I planted more bare root roses last fall in exotic colors, and why they are blooming now.

I see this power in all the creations of nature.

Can you see the divinity of a rose?

These are Koko Locos. Chocolate roses, that bud brown, and turn lavender. I only learned of them last year.

Cheers to you and may roses bring their peaceful power to you~

  1. So happy you are a fellow rose lover! Thanks for the heads about the Old China roses. I had no idea! Cheers & hugz ` ❤ ❤

    • Thank you for sharing your lovely garden! I mentioned the Landscaping with Antique Roses book in the other comment but since you also love butterflies you might also like Druitt’s solo book The Organic Rose Garden. I love both for the wonderful introduction to so many beautiful roses as well as for the info on taking better care of my own:-)
