First Rose Blooms This Spring

This is a floribunda type rose because it's blooms flower in clusters.  The closest I can come to a name for this beauty (which I picked out years ago because it reminded me of the old fashioned roses my grandmothers grew)  is perhaps a "Betty Boop", although I think the Betty Boop has a brighter, more reddish blush around the edges.
Another floribunda rose, but also a type of climber, called Shazam. I love how it seems to change colors after it opens.    
 I also have buds on my Peace,  a little pink tea rose that James bought for me last year, and my two reds (one a climber, one bush).  My new rose for this year is a type of hedge rose called a Knockout Rose.  I can't wait to see how it does.
