Finally some blooms!!

Yay!! The blooms are finally opening up. It was sunny and warm yesterday... cooler today. But tomorrow it's supposed to start raining AGAIN! I'm soooo sick of it. But at least a few things showed up to cheer me up...

BREATH OF LIFE CL - not really much of a climber tho

FLAMBEE - a new one I got from Cliff at EuroDesert Roses

SMALL TALK - one of the "talk" series of floribundas

STRAWBERRY ROMANCE - probably the biggest and best bloom I've gotten on this one in like 5yrs, and all bug-eaten!

And here's a few of the irises opening up too...

Wow, that Strawberry Romance is really beautiful. Your irises are gorgeous, and I am trying hard not to start another obsession...

Flambee looks very promising. Strawberry Romance is a yummy feminine-looking boudoir rose.

So why doesn't Breath of Life want to climb?

Very nice, I really liked Small Talk, that one is really pretty and the leaves are really attractive. That's the shade of yellow I like.
Yes, I liked the last iris also, Cranapple:)
