They're lovely Cristina - really lovely. I only have 2 roses & I neglect them dreadfully.
I especially love your yellow one - canary bird - & the next red one. Beauts!

They're beautiful - I especially like the canary bird. The colour and shape are gorgeous. They make me think of wild roses in the hedgerow.

Love the white/pink climbing ones. What are they? How many of them do you have planted? About how long are the canes? Do they flower continually all season, or just once, and how old are the bushes? Sorry to sound so (full of questions) just trying to figure out what variety they are. I don't see any close-ups of them. I would love to plant some in my garden. Does this site have a (cutting swap page?) I'm new, and trying to find my way around!
Aren't the white roses so... lovely at night? people don't realize it, until they are out in the garden at night!

Cristina, it's always nice to know the names of our flowers but in some cases there are so many that look similar but try ''Splendid Garland' for the first pic.
