I was out shopping and stopped by Chamblee's and look what I found in the sales tent. All for $5.00/ea: Hyde Hall, Cordelia, Mortimer Sackler, Blythe Spirit, and The Generous Gardener!

(Edited to fix my shockingly poor spelling!)

Thanksgiving Rose got ripped out of the ground by a burgeoning super cell that went on to MS. I planted the rose back into the veg garden and staked it. It looks to be doing better now.

Lions Fairytale got the same treatment but is not faring as well. I think it will be OK though. It is hanging in there and still has produced blooms even though I cut it back a lot. I moved it to a new bed so it may just need some good compost for it's feet and some mulch. We'll see.....

Here is that NOID I got from Chamblee's. Toni suggested that it is Sir John Betjeman. I think she is right. PS. Not rust in the bottom left-hand corner, just one of the dogs trying to edge her way into a photo-op!

My first bud of the year from Buttercup. I promised I would post it. Not quite open yet so the rich yellow isn't there yet, but here it is!

I'm assuming you bought those $5 roses, Terri. Am I right? Did you buy anything else?

The name is Mortimer Sackler, by the way. He just died in March and he was a prominent philanthropist -- and anything but a slacker. (I tried to come back and put a smilie here, but it didn't work because I had already gone on to the next paragraph).

Your Summer Song is doing beautifully. What a wonderful rose!

While Toni's Sir John Betjeman ID might be correct, I have my doubts. The rose is so new that only a couple of places on this continent are carrying it this year. It's doubtful that Chamblee's has had SJB long enough to produce a bush that size, or even a bush large enough to take cuttings from. It looks suspiciously like The Dark Lady to me. Chamblee's Dark Lady is always that color, much to the surprise of people who expect it to look like the photo on their website.

Zuzu, sorry about the dislexic typo. I just do that sometimes. I almost always have Merriam-Webster Dictionary site open on the next tab over but names often trip me up. You wouldn't think someone who worked so long in cataloging and coding in libraries would have such a problem, but there you have it. No offence meant towards Mortimer, either!

We have been going back and forth as to whether that rose was Sir John or The Dark Lady. I've had that rose for three years. The thing is, the blooms are easily 3" across if not more. Can't seem to get a bloom size on The Dark Lady from the website, but the size does fit SJB. I did get that rose from Chamblee's, but as a NOID in the sales tent (the NOIDS are $2-3 depending on when you are there). They often have roses in there that are not part of their regular "line-up". And that is the problem. Of the five I just bought from Chamblee's (Oh, yes! I bought them! I was trying hard to stick to my budget or else I would have bought all of the Cordelia's they had!) none are listed in their current catalog. Two of them are grafted and that is not usual for Chamblee's. All five have the Austin tags on them. Whatever that rose is, the blooms are huge and they come in big flushes. Since Chamblee's and DA are within spitting distance of each other in Tyler, I suppose it would be possible for Chamblee's to be testing roses for DA or whatever. To be honest, it doesn't really matter to me if that rose is Sir John or TDL. It is kind of an academic thing for me. But it does look like some sort of Austin, doesn't it?

And yes again, I did buy those roses as well as hanging baskets from Breedlove's and a bunch'o'stuff from Blue Moon. And a birdhouse from the Edom birdhouse guy! Everyone at my house was out of town for the weekend including the visiting relatives, so I was left to my own devices. See what happens!

And I'm having trouble with the little smiley face guys as well. Sometimes they work for me and sometimes not. Oh well =~)!

What is a NOID?

That rose is beautiful. Which is it decided that it is? I have not seen a rose for five dollars in a long long time. you are so lucky.

NOID - No ID - No Identification - No clue as to who the rose is! Smiling And check out Home Depot. Sure, they're $10, but still, can't beat the price!

And whatever that mystery rose is, it sure is beautiful! Does it smell as wonderful as it looks?

stephgem, NOID = no ID (I didn't know that either for the longest time). I'm not completely decided as to which rose this might be. Where are those nifty NCIS DNA-ID-on-a-dime kits when I need one? I'm thinking of buying Sir John and The Dark Lady from Austin and putting all three in a bed by themselves. Physical comparison may be the final clue. The actual name doesn't really matter for me, it is the puzzle solving that is the thing! Short of that I may just call that shrub "Bob". I've always wanted to name one of our dogs Bob, but DH thinks that is not a good name for a dog. So, in a flight of whimsy, I may name it "Bob". Or more aptly "Lord Peter". Is there a rose named Lord Peter?

And yes, that was pure luck stumbling accross those $5.00 Austin roses. I had been debating with myself all morning whether to stop in at Chamblee's. And with a last minute swerve into the parking lot I parked and found Maria was wanting to show me around. I only wanted one rose, Honey Sweet (which I also got). She mentioned that I might stoll through the sales tent as some new plants had just been put in there. Ah, Maria, you happy little enabler you!
