Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

Here is Duchess de Brabant an 1857 tea rose. This was a favorite of Teddy Roosevelt. He often wore a bud as a boutonniere.

This Madam Joseph Schwartz 1880. This rose is a sport of Duchess de Brabant.

These are two of my antique roses. I have about fifteen varieties now. If I had room, I would have more.

Here is a terrible picture of the two blooms together. I tried and tried to take a clear shot, but my camera just wouldn't do it. I need photography lessons.
