    That's a lovely rose, @Pacnorwest!

    Looks like a classic, perfect hybrid tea rose form. What beautiful shade of red.

    I always feel some nostalgia about hybrid teas. My mother had a garden of them, as did my grandfather's sisters. The scent and form really take me back.

    Sojoerd absolutely roses are a classic favorate. Considering Portland Oregon is “The City Of Roses.”
    In 1889, the Portland Rose Society was founded, and promoted the planting of 20 miles (32 km) of Portland's streets with roses in advance of the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition. The nickname grew in popularity after the exposition, where Mayor Harry Lane suggested that the city needed a "festival of roses."

    And roses are everywhere along highways, huge test centers for new varieties, and roses in parks and always the city streets are flanked with many different colors . Roses are a huge favorite . During the Rose Parade thru streets of Portland all the floats are decorated with every flower you could think of designed toward the theme of the parade. The Biggest Parade in the west. Every group and float has to have roses.

    During the years I rode with a horse riding group in the Portland Rose Parade, all the horses had to have roses decorated on them . And of course horses love roses their fav snack. We were lucky to make it thru the 4 mile parade with any roses left at all. We always used red highbred tea roses filled out in a decorative floral display on both sides of the horses also with roses tied in their manes and tails. All the saddles and horses polished to the nines and each riders costumes . We were all in competition with several other horse groups in the parade.

    Daniel I agree it is a very nice shade of red. Classic and distinctly original. Just when ya think how different could a new rose be … this one has made a huge debut with many rose lovers.

    I always like visiting the Portland Rose Garden and Portland Japanese Garden next door.

    Those horses sound wonderful.

    I lived in Portland for a number of years. I never went to the Rose Parade. Too many people for me.

    Daniel the Washington Park in Portland is full of so many tried and true roses tested for the PMW climate. I used to volunteer with a group to help maintain and trim the roses in the garden.

    It’s good you have moved from Portland it is now stripped of it’s former style, popularity and downtown was so clean with so many amazing shops to explore. The homeless has shut down so many businesses and so much violence in many small residential communities. It’s not even the same place it was just a few years ago.

    The Rose Parade is a lot of fun and really an experience I’ll always remember. It’s fun to work on the floats from my small town entered in the parade.
    My horses were angles in parades and nothing upset them. They are bomb proof, even when the airforce jets fly over us to start the parade . We also did the St. Patty’s Day parade and the St Paul rodeo opening day.

    Daniel you seem very happy where you live today. And have put a lot of effort into your home and garden, which I always enjoy a small peek thru your progress pics shared.

    What shade of red is that? I don't think it's crimson or fire engine red. Maybe raspberry?
