Wednesday in Ohio

mantis__ohJuly 2, 2014

That's southern Ohio, and anyone who lives in Ohio knows there is a big difference. Still hot here, but tomorrow should be different.

Rose Masterpiece is throwing a huge bouquet.

Cosmic Traveler with Ethel Buccola

Ashton's Giggles is still under evaluation. Scapes seem short.

Spring of Living Water is new here. I must say it doesn't look quite like the Korth pics.

Absolute Treasure had a bunch open.

Nobel had a big, perfect flower:

Mystical Rainbow is always photogenic:

And nearly always Forever Redeemed:

Royal Lavender (not great bud count, but puts them out):

Matthew Martin, another prolific Dougherty:

Grace Like Rain hasn't multiplied a lot:

Atlas Shrugged, aptly described as brawny and robust, has huge bright pink flowers in the early morning and then fades to a more burnt hue:

Red Suspenders was imposing in the garden:

Rose Masterpiece is really a beauty today, Mantis. And just one after another, Forever Redeemed, then Mystical Rainbow which I really like. Matthew Martin is very nice, and Red Suspenders is an attention getter. A very nice group of blooms today. You season is looking very good.

Wow, Rose Masterpiece is calling my name. I don't know what happened to mine. I think I may have moved it one too many times, but your photo is exquisite and I'll have to get it again.

Glad Atlas Shrugged is shaping up for you. Mine is never really pink, but always in the peach range. I love it regardless.

NJ Momma: Matthew Martin multiplies like rabbits. Its weakness, however, is that a lot of those dark brown blossoms are splotched.

Chris: At first, I didn't recognize the bright pink as Atlas Shrugged, but I knew that was the plant. This evening, it was closer again to the morning color.

Rose Masterpiece even if it has a bad day, still wins us over in the end. Several of the Korth's will be blooming here shortly and I must say they did great getting through our horrid winter.

Always a pleasure seeing your pics.

Your clump of Rose Masterpiece is breathtaking! I just love that color! Clumps of Mystical Rainbow and Forever Redeemed are quite captivating too!

I changed the picture of Mystical Rainbow, as by mistake I put one from early morning that had bluish tones. It's amazing how different light conditions produce different color tones.

That clump of Rose Masterpiece is awesome! All your blooms look great, and you pic of Ashton's Giggles reminds me that I wanted that plant badly when it was first introduced. I will have to keep an eye on the LA for that one.

So many nice ones! Lots of variety.

I like the attitude of Red Suspenders. It's sturdy one.

Agree about Mystical Rainbow and Forever Redeemed. Yours look great!

Matthew Martin is one I haven't seen before. It looks quite velvety.

Enjoyed these.
