Here's a few more from today...it seems they are all waking up at once! :)



Corylus...loving the itty-bitty leaves :)



Persian Light

Mme Letuve de Colnet (my new French import rec'd from Angel Gardens last week!!)

John Hopper (looking a little blackspotty early on)

Eyeconic Lemonade(I love cloudy days when it holds its color)

Tammy, don't hold back; please keep posting more pictures! I love your rose selections and your French import rose is to die for. Sparrieshoop has lovely blooms but I got rid of mine because it turned into a thorny and gangly monster. You live in a different climate and may not have that problem. Acropolis is new to me, very pretty and a lovely color.

Thanks Ingrid and Seil :)

You're right about Sparrishoop, Ingrid. Even here its very tall and stiff. I really like the blooms though...it reminds me of a repeat blooming species rose or something!

Seil, don't let Persian Light fool you...its a rare sight to get a good bloom off of it...most of the time they get eaten by bugs before they bloom. So sad!

So glad you "couldn't help yourself"
The Persian Light is unusual looking.

Wonderful, Tammy. I like the leaves of Corylus too -- and its pointy buds. Sparishoop is spectacular! Its dark matte foliage looks so healthy and the flower with its shapely petals that darken so gradually is quite pretty. But I am a pushover for those over-the-top roses and Mme Letuve de Colnet, well she is beautiful.
