This is a rose from my mother's garden!
By Orquidea from Porto, Portugal
My mom gave me this rose bush several years ago. I don't know what the name of it is. I call it Mama's Rose. I started taking better care of it 3 1/2 years ago after my mom suddenly passed away. I always trimmed it back every year and I had no idea that it would climb.
My husband built this arbor to go over the stream and I let the rose bush just grow bigger and started putting the longer branches upon it and it has become so big and beautiful. If I can keep the dead roses cut off, it will bloom all summer and just smells so good. Mom loved this rose bush. She would be proud of it.
It might be New Dawn rose.
This rose has the color of 2 plants, yellow and pink. I think that is because it is too close to my red rose plant. It is beautiful though.

I agree with Nanny Barbara. This is the famous Peace rose and it performs very well in my garden in Texas.
Resting, rocking, meditating or praying; all are made more lovely by the view of roses. Belinda's Dream rose invites us all to dream.
I wasn't sure when would be a good time to trim my rose buses, but went ahead and trimmed them anyway this spring. After checking on the internet, I discovered it was actually the best time to do so.
Here is my Double Delight Rose. It's the only rose in my garden that has an exquisite aroma, besides being so gorgeous.
This is my new mini rose garden in the back yard. DH added a mini fountain and small solar lights to the area. We have a solar lighted umbrella and rockers added to face the little rose garden, all in containers.
This is just one of the many flowers in my backyard. My husband has a green thumb.
After a nice rain shower, these Knockout Roses look awesome with raindrops on them. Knockout Roses require little care and are prolific bloomers.
These lavender roses were a birthday gift from DD. They looked like "Sterling Silver". But they didn't smell like them nor did they open like them.
That was in Barcelona, Spain. We went to a Natural Park and I just took a picture of that flower. I just liked the color of it and the background.
These were a gift for my birthday. My favorite of all of the roses. They are just so beautiful and I love them.
I have a photo of my yellow rose which we purchased at Home Depot the weekend of April 10. We planted it right away.
The elegant color of my knock-out roses is so astounding. The leaves look as if they were colored by an artist's paintbrush; the buds of the roses are so deep red and the blossoms are aglow with a red hue that captures one's eye and heart!
This is my beautiful knockout rose bush; so easy to care for. Beneath it are two broccoli plants in a pot. Can't wait to see them blossom! My fist ones.
This is a pink rose among other budding roses. It was taken at Shore Acres State Park on the Oregon Coast, famous for it's gorgeous rose gardens. It has a very sweet smell, almost like perfume, and is soft to the touch!
This is a beautiful red rose, my favorites like a lot of people's. I walked through my neighborhood and came across this picture perfect rose, just this one, in my neighbor's garden.
I've always believed that white roses are beautiful, but nothing could beat the way God's sun touched this blossom with its rays and made it glow.
While visiting my daughter I was able to take this pic right after a rain storm so beautiful with the rain drops still on.
Roses that have vivid colors.
I absolutely love rose gardens. Here, there were yellow roses with pink highlights that I believe were just incredible!
This beautiful perfume delight was grown in my own front yard this past summer.
This is the only rose on this bush right now. It is always fun to find a bargain at the $.99 store, even if they have taken the name tags off. This is not a miniature rose bush, but it is smaller than most.
Happy to say the rain we've had in Moorpark has been helpful this year. As promised, here are more pictures of the roses in our yard.
This rose plant was purchased back in 1997, and has been moved to three different locations (within Mississippi). It produces at least one bloom every year. It is my wife's favorite rose.
