Spring comes reluctantly

Here are a few blooms from my early spring garden. It seems spring is very reluctant this year and this has given the poppies time to grow and enjoy the cool. My front yard has the earliest blooming roses, as it gets full sun all day (when there IS sun).


Angel Face, its second year, has very large blooms in spring


Givenchy, a wonderful rose if you like multicolored flories


Imposter, staying a smallish bush for me, never without blooms


Joseph's Coat is just starting


Lynn Anderson is wonderful for me, everblooming


Summer Fashion


Gingerbread Man, mini in the back garden


Dutch iris

And, the Iceland poppies:

Angel Face is extremely wonderful looking!!!! Wow!!!

I also really, really love your Givenchy and Lynn Anderson.

Wonderful shots.

I have always loved poppies. When my grandma was alive her house had poppies all around it. Nice memories!!

Thanks so much!

All beautiful as always! Love that GIVENCHY! I know what you mean about the weather. I'm so sick of rain and cold and lack of sunshine I could just scream!! This is the latest the cold weather has persisted that I can ever recollect. I still don't have much blooming yet. It's a bummer.

Thanks, all, for the nice comments.
Yes, Beth, if it doesn't warm up and dry up soon, very soon, we are in for the biggest fungus party ever. It is scary! On the other hand, enjoy the cool while it lasts, as the heat ain't no fun, either! :)

Beautiful, beautiful roses and I really like the poppies also. I have California poppies coming up by themselves this spring from seed they dropped last year.
