Still have roses just beginning to bloom. Here is the latest batch.

Anne Boleyn--Austin shrub, shorter--about 3 ft tall. Hasn't been much of a bloomer so far--hope this is its year to shine.

Chrysler Imperial--just one bloom on the plant, but isn't it gorgeous!
Photobucket

Braveheart--one of my favorite shrubs--from Clements.
Photobucket

Mayflower close-up--Austin blooming like crazy this year!
Photobucket

Well-Being--isn't this a charming bud!
Photobucket

Well-Being--here it is trying to open up. Love the color!
Photobucket

Eden climber--just starting to open. In about a week, it should be spectacular.
Photobucket

Dublin Bay--another climber on a pillar.
Photobucket

Double Knock Out--not bad looking blooms when they first open.
Photobucket

Molineux--I have another thread showing off this one, but since it just opened a couple days ago, I'm including one of the photos here also.
Photobucket

Center bed in backyard--overview
Photobucket

Black Iris--which is really different shades of dark violet/purple. My camera just couldn't handle that rich shade, but did a good job of capturing its dramatic qualities, didn't it!

Other than the iris, these blooms are all about 6 weeks early, what with our early spring. (And no, the tornados didn't pass through this part of Kansas, although tornados tend to be part of our usual springtime weather--unfortunately.)

Beautiful! Braveheart is so eye-catching, and Eden looks so good on that pillar. I adore the Iris and the look of your garden. Very cottage-y. :)

I have really enjoyed your photos. I especially enjoyed the overview picture. I have Braveheart and it is one of my favorite roses. A real bloom machine. I hope you will share your garden with us again. It is truly lovely. Thanks, Lesley

I love your garden shot, Kate! Wow, my rose are doing more of the Jack in the Box individual blooming instead of the massive cluster, lol! I got lots of clusters but they are opening one at a time instead, haha! I am jealous!

Oh my gosh- your Eden has gotten huge. I saved a photo of it to my clippings a few years ago- I can't believe how much it has grown!
