First bloom

SouthCountryGuy Zone 4b-5 SE BC(Zone 4b-5 SE BC Canada)July 2, 2014

I will admit I am an absolute newbie to roses but thanks to you folks I pushed through and ordered. From the one rose last year (Morden Sunrise) that addicted me I now have a mere 40 and this is the first to bloom out of the new batch.

Meet 'Penelope'

I know you all have seen her before but I am so thrilled I had to share!

Thanks all, since 'Penelope' started she hasn't quit tossing out new blooms. I love the soft pink that fades to white.

Since we have finally had a good switch in the weather every morning I am getting new surprises, so much fun.

Yes, it is a wonderful addiction that I especially love sharing with my two young daughters.

Many blooms to all of you!!
