Rose - Buck's Fizz & Pensioners Voice

I must admit that the last picture was taken with a temporary camera. I now have in my hot little hands, a Canon IS S2. Whoopee!! What an amazing camera it is. I have just begun to explore its uses, but here are a few of my best results to date:

Buck's Fizz

At one time I assumed this must be one of the roses developed by Dr Griffith Buck, but I have not been able to find any mention of it in lists of his roses.

Pensioners Voice (aka Michelle Wright)

I picked up this beauty for $7.50 in early spring this year. It was in a special section labelled as last year's roses. Both this rose and my Iceberg have done extremely well. I will definitely make a special trip there next year. Beats buying them at the end of the season for only 20% off.

I finally have a camera!! I have been dying to take pictures of my garden but after the stealing of both of our cameras in Costa Rica, it has taken awhile to decide which camera to get to replace them. This is my son's replacement, identical to the one that was stolen. It is an Olympus and is just so easy to use. Posted by Picasa
