Roses surviving the heat wave

bethnorcal9June 30, 2013

Ok, so we had rains and pretty darn cold temps last week, now we're heading into possible record high temps in triple digits. Go figure. The roses are doing their best to adapt. Some have been totally fried within hours of opening. Others are loving it. Oh well, this right now is actually our "normal" summer. It's the cold and rain that's not normal.

These are some blooms that looked decent the last couple days:

BON-BON

FLORA DANICA

MICHELANGELO - aka THE PAINTER - two different looks on the same plant

NICOLE CAROL MILLER

NIGHT SKY

ORANGE JUICE

ROYAL ASCOT

SOUTH AFRICA

VENDEE IMPERIALE

J&P TEST ROSE from last yr
