OK, the other one was looking kind of slobby, like me, so I'm starting a new one fresh. And, to start with a new one, here's a NOID. I know it's a Parade rose, I found the tag. But it's a mini rose from Walmart that I bought 3 years ago for $8. Calif-Sue should like this one. Smiling It's one of two apricots I have (the other being Medallion).

That apricot is next to one of my red NOIDs. I guess I can't call it red any more.. more of a vibrant pink. This too is a Parade rose, again from Walmart for $8. You can see Pinstripe peeking from behind the apricot.

Now I thought that this was Ring of Fire. It's not. I know I planted it last year, but I can't find either a tag or an invoice. I know it's a mini, possibly from Nor'East. I know that this is NOT from a local garden store as they wouldn't carry something this cool. And ideas would be appreciated. Not thorny at all, bloom about 1.5" across, can't smell (just watered last night, so not smelly).

Back to the apricot & red NOID. I love this shot, how the apricot is faded in the background. Almost true-to-color.

You can see a little of the aphid damage before I went to town with GreenLight on the previous picture. This picture, however, shows that it freckles as it ages. Strangely beautiful, IMO.

Mardi Gras is having a party. Granted, it's a small party because it's a small bush (after the winter decimation the poor thing endured), but it's a party never-the-less.

Orange Velvet is a bit of a nodding rose, I guess. Sad Oh well, still gorgeous.

Opposite side of the house (west side) is a bed that is only roses (for now.. planting salvia & stuff). It has a honeysuckle on the wall (MASSIVE booger, considering!) and a new burning bush. This is where I put my Outta the Blue. You can see how it fades.. normally it wouldn't crisp up on the edges like it is, though.

Then, as I was watering this section, I found a bloom kind of hidden away. This is a really leggy bush.. I should trim it down. Excuse my hand in there.. you can actually see the window well where my bedroom is (the master bedroom is in the basement). True-to-color.

What's shocking is how pathetic the bush is. Sad Was chopped down almost 100% to the bud union with winter kill. Excuse the grass & weeds.. I'll be mulching in about a month or so.

BlueGirl is still my favorite. She doesn't ask for much (which is good 'cuz she doesn't get it) and gives me beautiful blooms. Seriously.

I got some roses from Costco earlier this year, and for some reason, Daddy's Little Girl never really took off. The companion rose in the 2fer was Ruby Ruby and it's definitely a ruby!

And I know that this is for roses, but I just love my honeysuckle. I'm planting it all over the place. Smiling :) Smiling I got this as one of those little strips from Walmart in '08. It was in a 1 gal bucket. I think it's grown just a tidbit, don't you think?
