Good morning Folks ~ Well, it’s morning here in s.e. FL USA. It’s windy, has been for several days, is partly cloudy, and cool this morning. I did some hand watering, washed and hung out a load of laundry. (It’s now around 3 p.m.)
I’ve counted up the roses in my tropical jungle, and have 43, some in containers, some in the ground, some are duplicates. I was amazed that I had this many.
Here’s the list of names below.
A Vigoro 5 petaled deep velvety red, with a wonderful scent. Had a name tag, but looking up the name, it didn't match with this rose. C means container, G means ground.

They are not all in bloom at the same times, but all of them are repeat bloomers. Quite a few are the old garden roses which I love. Some have stronger scents than others, I love them all.
Ok, now for some recent pics of roses that are blooming. Enjoy.
This is the Vigoro rose for Home Depot, the tag on it said, ‘Veranda’ Brilliant, but it definitely is not that. It is velvety dark red color with a fantastic old rose scent.
‘Sacremento Cemetery Rose’
The next photos I think are ‘Prosperity’. This is a cutting off my bush that is growing in the ground.
‘Paul McCartney’ Rose with brunsfelsia. Those white tubular flowers smell wonderful. Strong from late afternoon til next morning. The ‘PM’ rose smells wonderful too.
This had no name tag when I bought it and another for $5 each from a local nursery 2-3 years ago.
This lovely lavender rose was bought at HD without a name tag. Color scrumptious and it has a wonderful scent too. I love the frilly edges of the petals.
‘Mrs. Atwood’ is a little more peachy than is shown in this photo.
The next photos are of ‘Byron Beauty’ passion vine flowers. I went out last evening and the sweet scent from these blooms was amazing. I bought this at Butterfyly World last year.
Front patio, looking east.
Ok, that’s it for now.
Have a great week.
