Roses At The Sherman Gardens

One of my greatest joys is photographing roses. I am so glad I can post them and share
their beauty with you. These are all from The Sherman Library and Gardens this week 
in Corona Del Mar, California. Enjoy!
'Tiffany'  hybrid tea

'Double Delight' hybrid tea


'Orange Juice'


'Chrysler Imperial'

'Perfume Delight'

'Oklahoma' hybrid tea


'Artistry' hybrid tea
While I clicked away, Mr COS followed and wrote down the
names and types of roses. I didn't post any white or bright
yellow roses 'cause they are hard to photograph in the direct
sun. I tried but they didn't turn out. Which one/ones is your
favorite. So few of my photos of red roses turn out that I'm partial
to the 'Chrysler Imperial' in this group. The 'Artistry' looks like my
coral rose (my header at this time).

I didn't know you had an amour. Have I missed past references?

Spectacular pictures. Each so clear and defined. I cannot choose a favorite, I love them all.
