    I've always loved gardening, but in the past couple of years, I've taken a special interest in roses. My Marilyn Monroe rose has been teasing with full buds for about two weeks, and picked this morning to show off.

    Glorious! Here she is in "fuller bloom" (metaphorically)

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    It's been a good year for the roses.

    Great pic. Any smell? I've grown somewhat addicted to smelling different roses. Strange, I know.

    Roses are my favourite plant in the garden. Yours is lovely, they last and last years and give and give.

    I want to get a Mint Julep rose to play with next year. Checked this year and everyone was out of stock.

    I had quite a few rose bushes that I put in, at our last house, that we moved from 14 years ago. They weren't Tea Roses. They were mostly the type that grew 'rose hips' that you could use to make various things with. I've reduced all my gardening to blueberry bushes, and they're producing now. YUM

    A beautiful rose. The only expierce I have with them is the bush we planted several years ago, a nice yellow variety. Two years ago the frost got the bush it grew back, but now the roses are red.

    I love roses. One of my favourite "rose" memory, was when I visited the Portland Rose Gardens in full bloom.
    Beautiful rose!

    . Went picked up the Sunday Paper this morning, dew filled yard, saw this rose heavy with few, not as pretty as the one that started this thread, but a rose never the less.

    Sounds like your rose died back to the root-stock (below the graft).

    That is a fabulous rose bloom, complete with spots of dew. Consider it a blessing. I think some people have a special gift for them, in addition to proper soil and sun and hard work. We have a scrubby little rose bush that I favor with coffee grounds and shrimp shells, and it has done some pretty blossoms this year, but nothing like yours or brads. Some of the new varieties have no scent at all. The ones with fragrance really are a thrill.

    As to my last name, being Rosenthal, I'm partial to roses. And that is a lovely rose. Bradley, yours is equally lovely
