  1. I have this thing about peachy-pink Roses. You have made my day. Thanks!

  2. Absolutely beautiful Masha, I have only seen some of these roses in books. They are truly gorgeous. The photo's in the books are nothing compared to your splendid photograghy. May I ask what type of camera you use, I am thinking of upgrading mine, but I am not sure what to get.

  3. Stunning blooms. Mrs. Dudley Cross is looking especially fine today....

  4. Masha, I love polyantha rose, they are hardy enough for zone 5a, I have no problem wintering it. The last one is stunning, the light creates many tones of colors!

  5. These are real 'Sunday roses'Masha, I never get enough of roses. The problem is : my garden is full, I don't know where to plant them anymore. I like the Reve d'Or very much and I know I can buy that over here. Some of the roses on your side of the Ocean I have never heard of. Also fun, I like to find out everything in my rosebooks.

  6. How beautiful. I have to come here to get my Rose fix. LOL! Eva is such a lovely little bloom.

  7. Thans you fot this 'rosse on sunday'...

  8. Thank you!

    Karen, I have a "consumer grade" DSLR, a Nikon D3000. It has some severe limitations, but I couldn't afford anything more expensive. I used a telephoto lens for the pictures in this post.

  9. Thanks Masha, DSLR'S can get expensive, I need to do some more research before I make a decision, but Nikon seems to be popular. Thank you once again.

  10. Dziękuję za wspaniałe zdjęcia pięknych róż , które jeszcze kwitną w Twoim ogrodzie. Pozdrawiam.
    Thanks for the great photos of beautiful roses that are blooming in your garden. Yours.

  11. Beautiful photos. I especially liked seeing Reve d'Or as I have a fairly new one in my garden and it has yet to bloom much. I can't wait! :) I would love to be able to stroll around the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden. It must be fabulous.

  12. Wow, every single rose you showed is a beauty!
    Take care

  13. They all look so soft and delicate! My favorite is the silk butterflies, Though I usually don't get excited about single roses, your photo is so lovely!

  14. Never saw any of this Roses before. They are beautiful Masha. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a wonderful day.

  16. Really gorgeous roses and photography, Masha. There were a half dozen that I liked "best", but my favorite best was the Noid. Oh, and Little Mermaid. They were all lovely. Thanks so much.
