Rose Buds: So Close to the Grand Opening!
Rose buds. Over the winter I showed you some rose hips and some spent blooms, but now first bloom is very close! Most of the rose buds in my yard are now showing some color, a promise of a riot of color in a few days. Last week, with the one night of freezing temperatures at my house and close to freezing the night before slowed the process just a bit. But, the nights are warmer now, and many of these should be open this week. These images are just a sampling of my roses getting ready to bloom in a very small Albuquerque yard.
Miniature rose, ‘Yoyo.’
Bud of miniature rose, ‘Yoyo,’ about to open.
Bud on small spray of shrub rose ‘Flower Girl,’ about to open. ‘Flower Girl’ can make huge sprays, and some seem to be developing for a little later.
Tis large flowered climber, ‘Royal Sunset,’ makes long and elegant buds.
I hope later in the week to show a lot of colorful blooms!
