  •  Radrazz is stunning (8+ / 0-)

    I'm over in PA staying with KBO for awhile after his hospital adventure and we have gone to Longwood twice since I've been here.  Yesterday's trip was dedicated to the rose garden and I spent a lot of time in there.   I forget the name of the red roses in one of the beds.  I did take pictures of the nameplates this time but I can't remember the name of the red ones.

    Most of the roses were still flourishing despite the colder weather. Only two varieties were sparse, but the red ones was one of those.  Only a few blooms that were not damaged.  Otherwise, there were tons of roses.

    We are going to do another walk today and photo shoot and we are deciding where to go.  We might go over to the Brandywine museum to get some pictures of the fall colors.

    Anyway, that photo is stunning, dance. The detail is amazing.

    Send my regards to mini-dance!  #1 son is preparing for the Yale International debate this coming weekend.  The Yalies are the top debaters in the league.

    •  Hiya, love. (6+ / 0-)

      Mini-dance says Hi to all.  Wish yours luck against those pesky Elis.

      Re: red roses.  Last time I was over there, they'd cleared out the roses around the Idea Garden, where 'Radrazz' was, and only the garden near the topiary was still intact.  The big red rose I photographed in that location earlier in the season (which I had been planning to post on Friday, btw) was 'Mr. Lincoln.'  Check in on Friday to see if that's your missing identification.

      Roses will keep blooming until the first hard freeze.  I am hoping to get over to Longwood sometime soon, but can't pin anything down yet.

      Best to KBO!
