Rose city

I'd only planned to add one rose to the garden this year but...
... when I moved the bird feeder away from the berries and the fence to the edge of the patio, I decided it would look silly with just one rose under it.

So...
"Chicago Peace" will be blooming there this summer.
Along with Mellow Yellow.

And....
For some reason, I just couldn't leave without Queen Elizabeth. She's taken up residence between the veggie garden and the berries.

It's going to be a beautiful, bloom-filled summer.

Oh my gosh ...... they are beautiful.

Last week there was a picture of Queen Elizabeth and she was wearing a pink suit just that color.

Lovely roses, I've grown Chicago Peace and Queen Elizabeth before. Great choices. I wish I had the room for roses!!

Ooh, *gorgeous*! Had to laugh though, about Peno staking out the feeder!

I am hoping for the same here. I don't grow long stems, but I LOVE their names.
I grow knock out roses in clusters. Reds and pinks this year. Cut them so low a month ago, that they are just filling in now. Blooms to come...I HOPE
