Last week I posted a picture of the rose above, Chicago Peace, on my photo blog. In that post I mentioned that we also had Peace, which is probably the most popular rose of all time. I also briefly described the differences between the two roses.

One of my faithful readers, Ginny, asked me to post a picture of Peace, so she could see the differences for herself.

But Chicago Peace isn’t the only descendant of Peace that we have in our yard. We also have Glowing Peace, which shows the family resemblance.

Love and Peace is another descendant of the original Peace rose in our yard. It, too, is a yellow-pink bicolor.

Finally we have Pink Peace. This is the rose that looks least like its ancestors, but is probably the most fragrant of the family.
I hope you enjoyed meeting our Peace family.
Betsy and I went to Tullahoma yesterday to see how my parents are getting along at my sister’s house. My sister has fixed up a semi-private living area for them and they seem to be adjusting well. Both Mom and Dad were in good spirits yesterday.
