Just a few blooms ...

bethnorcal9July 20, 2009

We've had high-90's to low-100 degree temps for several days now. Most of the roses are crispy critters. Oh the deadheading I need to do.... so little time... and I don't feel like going out in that heat!!

Here are a few that haven't fried yet:

CHANTILLY LACE

HARRY WHEATCROFT - no stripes in the heat for some reason

KONFETTI

O'RILLA

WANGUAFONG

WESTMINSTER PINK

WORLD PEACE

Very nice roses! I like all of them! Wow! 90's and 100's that sure would crisp roses. Temps been staying in the 70s to mid 80's here with cooler nights.

Beautiful pictures as usual, Beth! Wanguafong looks really interesting. I like Harry Weatcroft too. Thanks for posting.

Great pics Beth! I love Wanguafong. Is it a climber or a bush? I was thinking I would like to have a pink and white rose. Thanks,Judy!!

You have some nice pictures here. I like my Chantilly Lace also. It seems to be doing okay. I do notice, however, that you make a comment about the disappearing striping on the Harry Wheatcroft in the heat. I also have seen that and posted a little about that on my Rock 'n' Roll striped grandiflora. It is interesting that you are seeing it on another variety with a similar cause.

But they're still very pretty Beth and have very delicate shapes! Your Chantilly Lace has such a gorgeous purple shade to it, I'm sure lots of purple rose people will be gushing over your CL. It is usually 90 degrees in Kansas but as of this week it's only in the mid-80s, which is unusual... Hope you too will get a break from the heat!
