Amazing second photo Fermi - almost surreal...
Here's the Rosa multiflora against a nice blue sky  :)
It has grown up into the neighbouring Silver Pear

The last few ultra hot days have burnt the roses.  Our Le pas du paradis which was full of rose buds one morning by the next afternoon they petals became like paper.  The Pierre de Ronsard which took its time to grow and produce flowers,  this year was not allowed to show its beauty. The petals tried to open but they went the same way as the other roses.  Even the Rosa damascena did not fair any better. Luckily the old fashioned Rosa moschata is impervious to the heat and has started to flower and keeps me happy.

Mine were ruined by some much needed rain just as they were in full flower. One reason why Roses are not amongst my favourite flowers.

Rosa 'Sparrieshoop' is still putting out a few flowers but these pics were from last month.
I thought this was an "old" rose but see it was raised in the last half of the twentieth century (Kordes 1953) cheers

Rosa 'Lorraine Lee' is a well known Australian rose bred by Alister Clark using Rosa gigantea, I think. In Melbourne it flowers through the winter but up here it waits till the frosts are over. It has a sweet scent typical of tea-scented roses.
This is a climbing version that we have trained up a wrought iron support

Fermi, they are such a beautiful sight. We never had roses like this.  You are a great gardener.

Hi Charithea,
this rose was bred for our conditions - I just provide a support for it to grow on and water during the summer - it does everything by itself! ;D
