It’s that wonderful time of year again, when the garden is full of blooms. I am delighted to run out every morning and inspect all of my roses. It amazes me how much can happen in just ten hours.
New roses planted this year:
Sundance – opened today!
Queen Elizabeth – no blooms yet
Cherry parfait – full of multicolored blooms
Beloved – long-stemmed red perfection
Moondance – fluffy white roses
Artistry – more hot pink than I expected
April in Paris – never have I smelled a sweeter smell
Saint Patrick – first bud should open any day now
Roses planted last year:

Disneyland – much more blooms than last year!
