A Rose By Any Other Name...




Lovely roses, buds and flower


And then you see this...I have 2 roses with stalks like this.  Can you say OUCH!?

Such a pretty flower but wicked thorns! I tore out my knockout rose bush because of that.

Beautiful roses. We gave up on trying to grow roses a long time ago, pulling out everything but the two heirloom climbers. Even though Oregon is a rose producing state (and Portland the 'City of Roses), we simply got tired of fighting black spot and rust, which is a common occurrence in a climate as wet as ours.

And yes, I believe that is a bottle of baby oil sitting next to the bathing beauty (Friday Freebie), and yes, I do remember when we all did that for a great 'summer' tan. How times (and information) change huh?

Beautiful shots! I love how the delicate pink of the rose contrasts with the thorny images.
