    Such beautiful blooms! I’ve always been afraid to try growing the hybrid teas, but these beauties are making me re-think that idea.

    My very first two roses were Mr. Lincoln and a yellow ‘bud’ rose called King’s Ransom. That was way back in 19**……. I haven’t smelled a Mr. Lincoln in decades, but can remember it well. Very nice photos, Chris. I’m still longing to see an oldie from you. 🙂
