Exuberant

Even I am in awe of this exuberant show being put on today by the roses. The climbing rose is 'Royal Sunset', a great rose with lots of interest as the large blossoms evolve from a deep peach color upon opening to a soft pink when fully open. The rose hedge further back is the 'Disneyland Rose'. A prolific, compact floribunda with orange-pink blooms. And these are all growing in a bed of about two feet across!
