The roses on the side are all blooming and they are gorgeous!! It’s too bad the wind is blowing petals off as quickly as they open…but hey, we’ll take the rain.
My new minis have all bloomed! My new minis have all bloomed!
As Mum-mum put it, there are sure a lot of birdie hormones flying around the yard at this time of year! It’s fun to see birds pair off, though. This House Finch pair posed for me in the oak tree. Although I suspect Peter wishes that our young Mr. Cardinal had not found a mate…he spends his day fighting with his reflection in Peter’s window! I guess that’s why we have the term “birdbrain”…
The first of my new bareroot roses bloomed this morning. ‘Mr. Lincoln’ is gorgeous!
All the roses are covered in buds, and in about a week I suspect the backyard is going to be full of color. ‘Peace’ started a few days early. The bright yellow and pink blended flowers are huge and look beautiful in the morning sun!
It’s hard to believe that ‘Bee’s Knees’ was just a twig a few weeks ago. I worried that I had pruned it too harshly, but no, now it’s almost as big as the rest of my minis.
The first of my recently transplanted hybrid teas is now blooming! This is ‘Double Delight.’
It’s the first ‘Bella Roma’ bloom that the insects didn’t completely destroy! I like springtime. :) Today Rich and I went to meet little Mathias Evan, the son of our friends Saidel and Jamie. He’s absolutely adorable!!
This one wins ‘First Prize’!
