Rare rose sighting

I doubt the variety of the roses is rare, but that I’ve managed to keep them alive and now blooming is somewhat rare. The white one is a Katharina Zeimet rose, an antique variety.

I still don’t know exactly what the red shrub rose is, but I love its dark red color with the royal purple Victoria salvia in the background. Thank you rain.

Those white and red roses remind me of Alice in Wonderland. I think I may have one of the same red rose bushes in my yard and also have no idea what variety it is. Hopefully one of your garden pals will help us both out and identify it for you.

Just lovely photos. Fingers crossed for more of that "rain" stuff. We could use it!
