I apologize that some of these pictures are not in better focus, as they were taken by hand at slow shutter speeds at dusk.
UPDATE: As per several requests, I have added the names of the roses next to the pictures.

How charming and no apologies needed ... thank you for sharing these lush gorgeous roses spilling over in your garden. A most lovely cottage garden feel. You have inspired me to put up a fence which I have been dragging my feet about for years... to protect my veggies but now also to attempt to have the lushness I now see in your pictures. There must be a heavenly fragrance all about you. To think this is your cutting garden... the lovely bouquets you must have. Delightful post!

WOW!! Please, what's the name of the red rose on the arbor? Quite a show you have going there! My climbers are at peak but the hybrid-T's are just setting buds...your secret for dealing with aphids?

The rose on the arbor is Dortmund, which I wrote about as the perfect arbor rose:

For aphids, I spray Dormant Oil early in the season, as you can read about here:
