It amazes me that roses can survive the snowy winters cold,
and will come back so beautifully year after year.
My very favorite, 
this 4th of July variety.
Petals are so few and fragile that Ive learned not to try to cut and put into a vase.

I don't have a name for this next beauty, 
but these are it's first buds of the season.  
They are hardier,
 and I cut them and hang them upside down to dry and enjoy the rest of the year.
What I've learned about this rose is that it's first blooms are the most vivid,
the next bunch that opened up last week are much more yellow then orange.
Those I cut and place in water to enjoy.
