Sue came up here last week and we went shopping at a few nurseries. She brought her darling doggies this time, so we all had fun.

She arrived with 13 roses that she had scouted out for me down in the South Bay Area.

Bronze Sunset
Frivolous Pink
Front Page
Donna Darlin'
Editor Tommy Cairns
Frederic Mistral
Girl's Night Out
Mother of Pearl
Sweet Promise
Traviata
Paris d'Yves St. Laurent
Bronze Masterpiece
Arizona

The top 4 are available only at Orchard Supply Hardware, as far as I know. Sue bought all of these roses at OSH and at Summer Winds. Some were bare root in bags and some were planted in containers, and all 13 came to less than $200. Sweet!

We then found more roses at Lowe's and Home Depot, ranging from $4 to $14 each.

Patchwork
Dick Clark
New Year
Pinata
Hopie Girl
Tyler
Cherish

Only 4 of the 20 are duplicates, so 16 of them are brand new to my garden, bringing the total number on my HMF list up to 1440, which is very exciting and kind of scary. I'm not even going to try to guess the real number, which would include all of the unnamed roses and duplicates. Apropos of that, I just got 8 more Belinda's Dream plants in the mail.

It is the new Traviata because I already had the older one.

This is the older one. I love it.

I went to Lowe's again and bought two more roses: Shreveport and French Perfume. They were only $4 each. I recently bought a small own-root Shreveport from Charlene, but this is a nice grafted one with huge canes. I already have French Perfume too, but it's so gorgeous that one more won't kill me. And who says no to a $4 rose?

Actually, I lied. It wasn't French Perfume, it was Broadway, but those two roses are almost interchangeable in my mind.

right now it's 1.9 degs w/a windchill of -9. And it's going to get much more colder tonight as there's not a cloud in the sky to keep in what little residual heat we got. BRRRR!
