Well, it's July, so I guess I'd better post my June blooms. As always, I'll do it in installments, just 20 or 30 a day. I've had a hectic week or two: new roof and skylights, new paint job on the house, new arbors and gates, and the graduation of the last of the ferals to the great outdoors. They are all out of the house now, enjoying the summer weather, and no longer confined to the screened porch (which they ruined).

This is Ann Henderson:

Here's another shot of Ann Henderson. The blooms look like the picture in my first post most of the time, but this shot shows the extremes. The petals have a darker reverse, so the bud is a russet-red, and the bloom on the left in this picture shows almost nothing but the petal reverse because the bloom isn't open yet. The one on the right in this picture shows how the color fades before the bloom shatters. When the bush is covered by a combination of all three, it's quite striking.

This is Anne Harkness. I tried to get a shot of the entire rose bush, but it's surrounded by Lychnis, so no luck. I had to settle for a shot showing all of the color variations the blooms show in various stages.

This is Apricot Queen, somewhat ravaged by bugs, but still exhibiting such a wonderful shape.

Here's Betty Boop, with a couple of Smarty blooms sneaking into the shot from the side.

I posted this one already in another forum because of the frog and the bee, but I didn't identify the rose. It's Bonica.

This is Butterscotch the climber, often called Jactan to distinguish it from the hybrid tea named Butterscotch. It had a wonderful Clematis Koreana (dark purple, almost black) growing through it, but that seems to have died, which has left the scene rather boring. I'll have to find another Koreana. It really was the perfect complement.
