OK, another mini parade going on. Have some new roses finally blooming, fiddled with my camera to see if I could get a better "true-to-color" shot, etc. So let's begin alphabetically again.

Blueberry Hill is a wonderful small bush for me... it's giving me 1-2 blooms every week, but I *really* need to see about finding the time/money (more time than money.. mulch is cheap) to get the weeds under control!! I'm thinking that the weekend of the 10th I should be able to do SOMETHING about the weeds.. I've tried to weed directly around every rose bush's vicinity but the grass keeps growing faster than I can pull it. Bad thing is that, for 4 years, I couldn't grow grass to save my life. Now it's taking over the back yard!!

This is the BlueGirl that survived my past winter with almost zero winterkill on the canes. I did mulch about a foot deep around the base to make sure she survived, and she's been blooming steadily now for almost 2 weeks.

I did the fiddling with the camera for this shot, so it's a longer exposure. But true-to-color.

Same type of rose, BlueGirl, but this was a bodybag from Walmart. True-to-color.

This was a big mystery for me.. I knew that I'd gotten this one from RU last year, I had a tag on it, but the tag got destroyed, so I wasn't able to figure out who she was. After finding my invoice, I figured it out.

I'd like to introduce Clare de Lune. True-to-color.

I didn't get as true-to-color shot this time, but you can see the Home Depot flag I put next to the plant so I wouldn't lose it when I was uncovering the mulch. You can see just how pathetic the actual bush is.

Now for great disappointment. Ebb Tide. I'm so saddened by this. Crying Crying Crying NOT what I wanted, NOT where I wanted.. nothing. Do you think that Weeks would send me a real Ebb Tide if I sent this to them?

Enchanted Evening is still so short, but it is blooming nicely. What can I give my roses to encourage leaf growth?

Now if I could only get Intrigue to start to grow, I'd be happy too! True-to-color. The purple flowers around it are some asters I need to put into the ground ASAP.

I can never get a good clear shot of the plant with the blooms.. the blooms are always blotchy white blobs.

Now Montezuma.. weird weird rose. It got squished by the tree going down and hasn't recovered. Now, with the 3rd installment of my parade, I stated that the one rose was Montezuma. Actually, when I found the tag (I *REALLY* need to order those nice tags!!), it was Kordes Perfecta. So, this truly is Montezuma, true-to-color.

Here you can see the "crawling around on the ground" effect of Montezuma.
