Sunday Part 1
These are pics from today and the last few days. Thunderstorms just passed through so it is safe to get online again.
STEALTH BOMBER- finally opening some decent blooms
FLAMING WILDFIRE - just starting
GENTLE ON MY MIND - disappointed in the budcount but heck anything that survived this year is a winner.
PINEWOOD ONLY IMAGINE - huge bloom but low budcount so far and had some issues opening correctly. It has more pink than my photo shows.
LONG LEGGED LAP DANCER - just started today and lots of scapes and buds.
BETTY SPAGETTI - new this year from Judy D. So far I'm liking it.
ARCTIC BLAZE - more pinkish in tones this year.
SPIRITUAL CORRIDOR - just starting.
OPEN DOOR - has been blooming but haven't gotten back out to take pics when it opened with multiple blooms.
INHERITED WEALTH - has been blooming but can't get a good photo since it takes almost noon before all the blooms open up fully. Also very top heavy in buds which doesn't help with openings.
LESLIE RENEE - just started opening. Seems also to be top heavy in buds which stops blooms from opening fully.
MOKAN BUTTERFLY - also having issues with opening during cooler mornings but once we stayed overnight in the 60's, it opens fine.
WESTBOURNE MAMA KIRBY'S NINE BRATS- not a favorite of mine and will definitely be on the list to leave.
AVALONIA QUASAR - just started opening.
SCIENCE OF MIND - just starting
STRUTTER'S BALL - disappointed with it this year. Top heavy in buds which stops many blooms from opening fully. It needs dividing badly so is on my list to get done this year.
PEACHES AND GOLD - down in budcount this year.
FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN - down in budcount but what a gorgeous red it is.
CHEIF EXECUTIVE OFFICER - just starting and full of scapes and buds again this year. Needs dividing so its on the list.
WASHED WATERCOLOR - just started. Budcount down, scapes are short this year but it was already marked to leave the garden this year.
GRASSHOPPER - tall scapes but the blooms are too small for my liking. Will leave the garden this year.
CLAUDINE'S CHARM - just started opening.
PRAGUE SPRING - always a champ in the garden.
Will stop here and do a Part 2.
