OT Roses since they are doing so well
Thought I would send along a few pics of roses. This is the best they have ever been since we moved here. We are wondering if the drought made them think they were going to die, so they got busy trying to stay alive. Avedon
My favorite rose, the tea rose Devoniensis. Too bad it doesn't do all that well here--the bush is pretty scrawny, but the rose is beautiful and so is the fragrance.
See what I mean about the scrawny bush, but it is loaded with blooms right now. How about that Bloom stalk and there is another on the other side.
This is the lovely polyantha rose Marie Pavie, also with lovely fragrance to match.
This is a 2 year old Belinda's Dream cranking out huge roses.
See what I mean.
Another polyantha favorite with fragrance, Perle D'Or
Here's Maggie--does it look like William Shakespeare 2000?
Lady Ann Kidwell polyantha blooming away beautifully.
Love the bush pic of Krownprinzessen Viktoria
Should have put this one right after Marie Pavie--this is a close-up shot of the clusters of flowers.
Closing out with a shot of the Texas state flower, Bluebonnet, which I discovered growing in our north field on Easter Sunday--what a lovely surprise!
