These last 2 pictures are of the only 2 roses I have in my garden.  They are the old-fashioned roses which are harder to take care of, often get black spot but they have beautiful perfume, beautiful pale colors and bloom well!  A few years ago the black spot was so terrible that all the leaves fell off and I seriously considered doing away with both plants.  I'm glad that I didn't give up on them!
