A rose is a rose??

I have chosen to not try my tired brain trying to publish a trip back to whatever and merely pursue the trip I have been on for several days as in Bees and more bees. For your edification I select the topic of roses. Not just any rose but roses that turn different colors and roses of many colors appearing together on the same plant. I discovered this anomaly this morning in the garden by our back door. I quickly grabbed my camera and produced the picture you now see below. The roses are showing the strain of our 100 degree heat and high humidity. I planted the roses in this garden, weeded them and watered them but I never saw this. I knew that I had photographed this rose plant before and I retrieved that photo as you now observe posted below. Nice picture I might say myself.
Tonight, when my wife and I returned from supper, we checked the plant out and much to our surprise this is how it looked.

Beats me???

I think the middle one is a Judy Garland. Looks like different breeds may have been grafted together in one plant. We have citrus out here in Arizona that have 4 different types of citrus on one tree. They call it a "cocktail tree".
