These are not the most beautiful blooms going, and the coloring is off on some due to the winter-ish clime right now (rain coming tomorrow and back to 30-ish degree temps) but at least I have something to photograph! LOL

CABARET - look how big that bloom is!

Your blooms look great, Beth, and that Cabaret is gigantic, indeed. It would be nice to have some smelly roses right now. Thanks for posting. Diane

OMG... I just got up this morning to a light smattering of SNOW!! Geez what a weird winter this has been. The temps were nearing 70s last week and now snow. It's not sticking too much, but I suppose it could if it keeps up. Bummer....

I want spring!!

RE: I have some blooms!

Wow--roses blooming in real time! Those are lovely, beth.

Mine are doing absolutely nothing yet, and we haven't had any real winter yet this winter. I'm just excited to see the green spears of the crocus and the daffodils popping up.

I date the beginning of my growing season each year when the dark glowing purple crocuses bloom towards the end of February.
