Autumn Roses

Time to post another couple of roses!
The autumn roses always seem to have a more delicate colouring.

Lolita - Classified as a Modern Hybrid Tea - Bred in Germany by Kordes in 1972.



Hermosa - Classified as an Old China - Bred in France by Marchessau in pre-1837.


I hope they brighten your day.

Re: Autumn Roses

the first one is my favourite Lyn, a lovely shape, colour and conformation and the upward stance gives it a more dynamic feel

Re: Autumn Roses

and I believe the second is highly perfumed ? I cannot get to my roses book (baby asleep in that room) just now

Re: Autumn Roses

I see what you mean about the more delicate colouring. These are delightful specimens and yes, they have brightened my day.

This is a beautifully formed rose Brian, easy to photograph.

Hi Chevvy. Have you moved house yet? Glad you liked them. Hermosa is a sweet little rosé and I love including some of the Chinas in my collection.

I'm glad John. . With our very strong summer sun which bleaches the colour out of the flowers so quickly, it is always lovely to see the autumn roses last longer.

I love autumn - today is cool and overcast with the promise of the opening rains that our farmers are waiting for.

No other word than Exquisite, Lyn. You are without doubt the Queen of Roses!

Re: Autumn Roses

How I love Lolita, absolutely gorgeous, can imagine the petals making a perfect dress for a Spanish dancer. Think I can smell the Hermosa, I love the old roses too. Fabulous shots Lyn.

Thank you Sandra. Lolita is a gem of a rose.
Last night was very humid with light rain and as I went for my usual walk around town, the roses that are now in full autumn bloom were filling the air with the most delicious scents. Walking along listening to my favourite music through my earplugs, carrying my umbrella and smelling the roses - I felt glad to be alive!

Lynn, you are reminding me that the VERY BEST THINGS IN LIFE are free, but for our time and attention of our senses ! You have me looking forward to the Mottisfont National Rose Collection in bloom this May/June - a little shower of the wet stuff does enhance their rose perfume

Re: Autumn Roses

ps not moved yet, in the final "throws" of the City Planners requirements ... its exciting and wildly frustrating (picking homes to buy, but not being able to Contract & Complete yet - that one goes to someone else and then I see another I Desire ... so la vie

Now hot on one with the scubland/common and golf links course and the sea directly out back of the fence ... but not biting my nails ... yet

I am planning my garden of next summer ... plumbed watering on electric timers from water harvesting tubs around the garden each bed with its seasonal blooms lots of Roses and Lavender about them and two arches ... fences covered with Clematis plants Buddlia for the Butterflies and Bees and lots of Oriental Poppies and Meadow flowers growing free in the grass (so it only gets mowed monthly ) and is a joy to lay on or sit painting

Re: Autumn Roses

They are both lovely, but I also like the colours and composition of the first one best too. Yes, definitely a way to brighten my day.

It all sounds lovely Chevvy - I can see your garden already!
I would love to wander around Mottisfont with you! Take lots of photos!

Thank you Amanda - like some other things in life Lolita commands a lot of attention for her bold appearance, whilst Hermosa is a delicate little thing with immaculate parentage. A China x Bourbon. A true aristocrat of the Rose world.
