Rain on the Roses

This Spring we have had so much rain in Missouri. It has been really great for the roses. They are blooming and what a spectacle it is. They are possessing an iridescent quality that I haven't seen in past blooms on the same bushes. I love Jackson and Perkins roses. The two roses above are Jackson and Perkins roses - but the names have escaped my memory since one of them is decades old. I received it from a neighbor. Her husband passed away and was the keeper of the rose bush, it was given to me after he died. The other one I planted twelve years ago when I moved into my home.
