I think " Dolce Vita " is really quite pretty Claudine and will look even more so when fully open - although I have to admit it is a very intense shade of pink - but all the same I do quite like it :)

How about something along similar lines but with slightly softer shading - like these little beauties

" Secret "

'Cresendo' in the last picture looks heavenly beautiful, it's my dream rose! I'm sure that soon or later I'll start looking for it, I'd love to grow it in my garden:)
Here is something really intense - 'Cherry Brandy':

Agree with you Claudine " Cresendo " is absolutely gorgeous :)

Love the fiery colors of " Cherry Brandy " too - as they're very similar but much more intense to those of " Free Spirit " which you posted a while back :D

How about this very unique - show stopper of a rose - as when in bloom it looks like a multicolored rose bush - whose flower colors change on a daily basis - as although the flowers open yellow with orangey pink or red tints - as they age they change color - which makes for a truly eye-catching sight :)

Wow, it's amazing! It looks like a completely different variety in the last picture! It's a beautiful rose. I've never seen it before, I haven't even heard of it.

I'm not sure how I feel about 'Bridal Piano':

On one hand, its colors are lovely. On the other, these flowers seem a little too round and puffy:p

Although I think the color of " Bridal Piano " is lovely Claudine - like you - am not altogether sure that I like the shape very much - think I prefer roses to have a more defined shape like this one

Sheila's Perfume - which I love the color of too - as it looks so cheerful :)

Love it - think " Mardi Gras " is absolutely - drop dead gorgeous Claudine - love everything about it and can only imagine that a rose as gorgeous as this - would have a perfume to match :)

As " Mardi Gras " is such a gorgeous rose - it makes the task of what best could follow on from such a beauty - a little difficult - but feel that this very unique and unusual rose is more than a worthy - as its just as beautiful but in a different way :)

Michel Serrault - with its beautifully colored speckled petals

"Michel Serrault" is lovely, I like these delicate petals and intense colors:)

Here is one of the most unique roses I've ever seen, "Abracadabra" (such a great name!):

Would agree Claudine think the name " Abracadabra " suits the unique colors of this rose perfectly - especially as each bloom is unique and totally different from any other :D

However even though I've always liked " Abracadabra " and always thought it to be an exquisite looking rose - its one that I prefer to see in a vase rather than growing in the garden - particularly as the majority of the ones that I've seen - tended to have a lot more yellow in them - than the one in your picture and looked what I would call " very busy " from a distance.

Although very similar to " Abracadabra " and actually even rarer and harder to get hold of - I would choose one of the two below - as they are a touch more subtle and a lot more versatile and particularly - my all time extra special favorite - " Hocus Pocus " - which looks absolutely stunning wherever it is :)

I think that "Hocuc Pocus" is much prettier than "Abracadabra", because it looks subtler and less chaotic:) But the truth is that I always avoid white and red flowers, because they look too patriotic (these are colors of Polish flag):p

I would be very, very happy, if I had a "Daybreaker" rose growing in my garden:

Isn't it stunning?:love:

Oh no Claudine - I'd hate to think - you are thinking that " Hocus Pocus " is red and white - because its not - its actually red and gold - just like the color of the buds in the first picture and when the bloom is fully open - it looks like a beautiful red rose with subtle flecks of gold in the petals :)

Love the look of " Daybreaker " and especially how fresh and bright the colors are :D

As I'm sure that there are many people who - like me, love velvety red roses - here is one of my many favorites

Haha, I was sure that " Hocus Pocus " is red and white, silly me, red and gold sounds so much better!:)
Papa Meilland is beautiful, I love its deep, rich color!

How do you feel about 'Princesse de Monaco'? In my opinion it looks really pretty:

I'm laughing Claudine because " Princesse de Monaco " is a rose that I like very much and also one which I had been planning to add - but you beat me to it lol :D

So instead - how about this lovely German bred rose called - " Die Welt " which in English means " The World "

" Die Welt " rose is very pretty, it looks like an orange version of "Princesse de Monaco":)

This is gorgeous "Summer Fashion", its flowers are very fragrant:

I was thinking the same Claudine which is probably why I like " Die Welt " just as much as " Princesse de Monaco ".

Although I think " Summer Fashion " is a very pretty rose with a lovely name - am not altogether sure why - but am a bit undecided as to whether or not I like it - think it possibly has something to do with the coloring - as although " Summer Fashion " has similar markings on the petals - I much prefer the depth of color in this one :D
