I wish I could raise roses. I love them, but it seems that they just don't do well for me. I think it takes a little knack to keep them healthy. Nice shots.

Beautiful photos. We also had the first rose bloom here, on May 13! Is the white rose "Iceberg"?

I love the sunset/shadow rose view. It's neat to capture familiar things in a different way.
