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---




This year the Celebration of Old Roses is on May 15th, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

It is at the El Cerrito (California) Community Center, on Moeser at Ashbury--- takey Hwy 80 or 580 to El Cerrito, Central Ave Exit. Go east to Ashbury, then left to Moeser.




One more for charm !
