First Roses of 2012

I didn't get shots of the others, but these sure were great!

2 shrub 'Lyda Rose' bushes flanks a climbing 'Alchymist' in the centre

'Alchymist' is climbing shrub rose from Kordes of Germany dating to 1956, once blooming, but oh what a bloom!

Both colour, form and fragrance are outstanding.  Its only flaw is that up here in the Pacific Northwest, it will blackspot, as will a lot of roses that have any yellow roses in their background
