and the winner is..

Abraham Darby rose, Denver, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

This is my winning rose, Abraham Darby. She lives in Denver but used to live in Southern California. I brought her and 4 more roses with me three years ago and hoped they would acclimate to this weird climate.
Just 7 weeks ago we had snow on the ground but it has warmed up since then and all the roses are in beautiful bloom in Denver. There was a rose exhibition at the War Memorial Rose Garden in Littleton on Saturday and yesterday an exhibition/show at the Denver Botanic Gardens so I thought I would give entering my roses in the exhibit and ...
This pretty rose won a first prize!! I also won one second for Paul Bocuse rose....and 3 thirds. I am glad I brought these roses 1000 miles East. They bring me great joy!
