    Beauti'ful, KLD. How many varieties do you have? Could we see a photo of your whole rose garden? My favorite has always been the J.F.K. Such a wonderful fragrance.
    I have 18 roses (all different) in raised beds in the back yard, and two in wine barrels on the front patio. I don't have a JFK, but the ones I posted range from Marilyn Monroe to Chihuly, Veterans' Honor to Black Magic, Peace, and St. Patrick and French Lace. Here is a picture of the overall back yard rose beds (raised beds I installed myself...I have awful clay soil otherwise). You can see two of the 3 raised beds here. You can see a peak of my tomato plants behind the roses too.

      I gave up trying to grow either tea or floribunda roses in Maryland. If it wasn't black spot or a fungus then the gazillions of Japanese beetles would eat them. Yours are beautiful and you should try a JFK in its own container because of its beautiful scent. Love your Peace rose!

      I am planning on container hydrangas back here in Wisconsin although a miniture bush rose might get a space...

                  That is one of the downsides of hybrids. Most have little or no fragrance. That is one of the reasons I loved my J.F.K. rose. When ever you went past it, you had to stop and take in the wonderful fragrance. Didn't need a reminder to "stop and smell the roses."

                    Actually, I shopped specifically for roses that had a good fragrance when I put in my beds. Walking out there this morning and deadheading, it was almost overpowering!! The bouquets I have in the house are also scenting the entire house.

                        Have you ever been to the rose garden at the National Arboreteum in Washington DC? They have a lot of wonderfully scented specimen roses. They are out there but in many areas of the country you need to really look for those that will also thrive. The rose garden must have an army of gardners because that area is hard on the foliage and without leaves there are no flowers. The new landscape roses work in all that humidity but those have no scent at all. You are really lucky to have both the beauty and the scent with yours.

                          Yes, I have visited that garden. Here in CA we have a great rose garden at Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, and in San Diego I do some work with the San Diego Rose Society, which maintains the Inez Grant Memorial rose gardens in Balboa Park for the city, including giving free pruning lessons every weekend in Jan. & Feb. annually. The garden is a very popular spot for weddings and other social events as well as just sitting, strolling or picnics:

                              Exactly! Next trip to San Diego that garden is on the list of things to see! Definitely better than the National Arboretum's Rose Garden.
