Spring 2013

socksMarch 31, 2013

I'm a poor photographer but have enjoyed the roses so much this spring and wanted to share.

Here's Betty Boop, an excellent, trouble-free, colorful bush

Not sure what this bush is....Brandy? Huge flowers!

Julia Child, just planted in January! Another good bush.

Here's Snowfire, not a favorite but a very tough bush

Last one: Mellow Yellow. Not the brightest yellow, but I like the shape of the petals, and it's almost constantly in bloom. It greets me when I pull in the driveway!

Love your Mellow Yellow! They all look so beautifully springlike--it will be at least another month before mine bloom--unfortunately.

Beautiful healthy plants! I too have Julia Child, she sure is a blooming machine. Too early for blooms here, so it's nice to be able to enjoy looking at yours!

Betty Boop is a scene stealer. I love the ruffled petals on Mellow Yellow.

Those frilly petals on Mellow Yellow are so cute, and I love the soft color. Watch out for Julia--she's going to growwww if she's anything like mine. I love that rose! Diane
