These first 2 roses are Black Magic, although not as dark as most photos.
Second 2 roses are Strike It Rich, and number 3 is Mellow Yellow.
I should take a photo of Vavoom soon; that rose is near the front, close to where the curve starts to make the front circle, and I've never seen a rose just "take over" :) ! I mean, Hot Cocoa is next in line toward the front, with a Gemini on the inside, and both of those plants were being overtaken !! 'Really a hardy and beautiful rose !

Oooo, lovely roses. Can't wait to see Vavoom!

I need to get out in the garden w/the camera. Been so busy lately I haven't had time to stop and smell the roses. Thanks for sharing so I can stop and look at yours ☺!

Gorgeous roses! Wonderful photos, too! It is spring here and I had to hurriedly take some photos of my climbers, which a have managed to ensure will bloom at the top of the arbour, from where it is very difficult to see or get decent photos.

I was hanging onto one of the posts trying to reach up with the little fuji camera and pray I got it right. With some of them I did! The others were either out of focus or I missed the subject completely. Today they all have burnt petal edges, and I will go round tomorrow and deadhead them all as I have lots more buds.

The bright pink is "Souvenir de Mme Leonie Viennot"and the other is Climbing "Peace" I have Buff Beauty, but she is being reticent!

LOL! Gabi65, you do quite well hanging on a post. That last photo is so clear. I have Souv de Mme Lonie Viennot, too. Very fragrant here.

Very nice images. With the cool weather setting in, the plants that went on survival mode during the scorching heat are getting back to flowering again.

My Just Joey was still blooming in the middle of our winter - the 14th of July, to be exact! I picked the last one and then pruned her of the other eight she had produced. It had been the coldest winter in 10 years. Where I live is near the sea, and we don't get snow, ordinarily.

This year, the inland areas got a few falls.Usually one in the season is news!

Gabi... we in the Northern Hemisphere forget that the season patterns are opposite down under. I have a Just Joey bush and it does better during cooler months than the scorching heat of Louisiana summer.

Nice picture.

Thanks for the compliments, and Gabi65, those are some very nice shots too; I came soooo close to
including "Just Joey" in one of my much earlier orders, but was so overwhelmed by the selections that I guess I forgot :) !! BTW, 'proud owner of 7 Kordes (4 in the rose garden, 3 still in a container) + the one David Austin rose; the 4 in the garden are actually starting to pickup and perk up quite a bit ! Of the 4 that my sister had given me, one just died for some strange reason (probably someone didn't quite put enough time into them...), but the surviving 3 are doing great and have blooms.
My 2 cuttings (Seven Sisters & Sweetness) are doing really good too; I may have to again extend my garden back a few feet to accommodate the new roses (but, I'm removing a couple that only bear tons of very small roses, so that may give me a little more room too). Will give an update soon; 'have been turning the water on for a couple of hours lately every now and then, and those roses really take off !!
('Have to be careful about that, as we're in a mandatory odd/even watering district...(: ).

I like that fourth rose, the color variations. Which one is it?

That's Mandarin Ice Terry; 'sorry I didn't get a better shot. I'm going to remove 3 plants from the garden that produce a large number of small buds and replace them with the Kordes roses.
'Sorry to have taken so long to have responded.
I've had black spot here really bad for a while, and it's tough fighting it, because it rains lightly every few days, and then the sky is overcast and there's not enough sun to dry the leaves off, but we're having a few "cold" spells (yes, I know you 'guys' up North would laugh at what we call cold :) ), which is great, because black spot doesn't flourish in lower temps.
'Hope you have been doing well, and your roses are looking great !

Thanks, scottishgent. I'm sure I've told you before, but my favorite Kordes is Lions Rose or Lion's Fairy Tale. Good luck with the Kordes. They have some very worthy roses, IMO.

Merry Christmas all!
