Celebrating Old Roses

 

The day after last year's Celebration, many lovelies lingered on my dining table. Here's the fun I had walking around the table aiming my camera. The first image ended up on the banner of the Celebration FB page. I don't think I'll ever change it! Doesn't it just say it all?

Tell me how cute--- I don't know who this moss rose is--- doesn't quite seem like Common Moss to me--- this one is more intense.

Then how about this bit of heaven? Sorry, I'm not the scholar today- I don't know who it is.

The stamens take charge--- aren't they lovely? The flower was a fine pale pink single. And one more---
