In Which I Bore You with Pictures of More Roses

My ISP was down again today. Took some rose pictures instead, with my Canon and my brand-new-to-me garage-sale tripod. The sun was a little high and a little bright, but still a reasonable effort. [Click on the pics for clearer, better images.]

Rosa ‘Leander’ (Austin)

Rosa ‘Tropicana’ (HT)

(Incidentally, I don’t usually have Hybrid Teas in my rose garden — too much muss, too much fuss — but ‘Tropicana’ looked so tempting in the Loblaws Garden Centre this spring.  I haven’t  been disappointed: it’s bloomed nearly continuously all summer. It was probably worth the 12.99 I paid for it, even if I kill it with benign neglect over the winter.)
