I Promised Her a Rose Garden (8)

Bella’roma Rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 2, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is the eighth post on the roses in our yard.  The previous posts can be found by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ below.

Bella’roma has soft pastel colors and a delightful fragrance, which accounts for her name.

Fragrant Cloud, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 28, 2012.

Fragrant Cloud, as you can imagine, has a very good fragrance.  This rose is in our small rosebud along the driveway.

Melody Parfumeé, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 2, 2012.

Another fragrant rose in our garden is Melody Parfumeé.  The fragrance is wonderful, but we like it just as much for its unusual color.

Midas Touch, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 27, 2012.

Midas Touch isn’t quite as fragrant as the others in this post, but it does have a rich yellow color that draws attention anyway.

Mister Lincoln, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 27, 2012.

Mister Lincoln is another variety that I’ve had for many years, and this plant is one of the first we got when we started our rose garden here in the Glade.  The blossoms of Mister Lincoln don’t last as long as some of the newer reds, but its wonderful fragrance and classic form allows it to remain a favorite in our garden.

    Hi George, You never fail to amaze with all these varieties of roses.
    I had no idea that there were so many types/varieties.
    I like this one the best, but it was not an easy choice – Bella’roma Rose.
    Yesterday on the Albion rail station I spotted an office worker (lady)
    stick her nose into the dismal display. She then appeared to take from her purse a pair of nail clippers and then as bold as brass, snip two flowers off. Obviously she wanted them for her desk!!
    That little exercise left only the remaining scrawny few !!!
    I was hoping that a bee may have stung her on her nose – ha ha!
    Imagine what she would do to your display. Better still, try not to think about that!!!! Good God, Betsy would be out with her shotgun, the Annie Oakley of Fairfield Glades rides again!!
    Cheers

    I especially love the Midas Touch!

  11. busy bee suz Says:

    Gosh…these are so gorgeous…even though I can’t smell them!
    If I could pick only one and have a million of them in my yard, I’d go with Melody Parfumeé! Lovely!

  12. Ruth Hiebert Says:

    No way to pick a favourite,so I choose them all together in a bouquet.

  13. Jewaicious Says:

    What beautiful captures of color and contrasts. I bet your rose garden is glorious. I love the varied tones. I am an avid rose grower, myself. I just adore them.

  14. Joy @ Joysweb Says:

    Your roses are really magnificent! Yellow roses are my favorite flowers, so I love those “Midas Touch” blooms, but they’re all gorgeous.

  15. Linnea Says:

    Those are beauties! Wow! And I bet they smell delicious too…
