Morning in the Roses
Morning in the roses, especially when they are at the peak of spring bloom, is such a refreshing start to the day. I thought I would share a bit of my morning walk with you.
Blooms in this image are the floribundas ‘Chihuly,’ ‘Marmalade Skies,’ ‘Dream Weaver,’ and the shrub, ‘Flower Girl.’
This next image shows the hybrid tea, ‘Veterans’ Honor,’ one of my favorite reds.
My neighbors and I share a wall of climbers. In this image, on my side, you see ‘Royal Sunset’ and ‘Fourth of July.’ They have ‘Eden,’ ‘Climbing Peace,’ ‘Don Juan,’ and ‘Royal Sunset.’ It is very nice to have neighbors with such a wall of blooms!
Our winter here in the high desert was so warm this year, that spring bloom has reached it peak quite early. I have enjoyed it immensely, of course.
The Albuquerque rose show is the last weekend of May this year. The early bloom may affect the number of blooms entered, although perhaps people in cooler areas (here in Albuquerque, as well as in Santa Fe) may have more blooms than usual to enter.
The blooms are certainly enjoyable now!
You are getting lots of blooms. Some of our bushes like Lady Banks and Austrian Copper are full of blooms. The rest are still sporadic.
This is the earliest I can remember mine blooming like this, and they will be finished soon. But, I am enjoying them while they last.
Those crazy high desert microclimates again! 😉
