This year we can actually shoot off fireworks here in my city in Colorado.. got enough rain that things aren't banned. Yay! But my yard is also exploding with color! Well, it *was* until Sunday when it was almost 100 degs.. and at my altitude, things get FRIED.

Anyways, here's Yankee Doodle! (I don't have a picture of my 4th of July)

No blooms for me this season. I am planting and deadheading my roses, as Lyn suggested, so that they grow roots in their new home. I am letting a couple of buds open on a couple of plants to figure out who they are - lots of labels got lost. No big deal, I am painting more rock labels. I hope it will pay off next year!

I hate the triple digit temps Grumbling Grumbling

The roses are holding up just fine. I am not. There is so much I want to do outside, but it gets too hot early in the day and stays hot all day long and doesn't cool off until after dark.

Unfortunately, it's going to stay this way for a while.

Things are blooming ! If I have time after watering in the mornings, I'll try and get some bloom shots.

Smiles,
Lyn

Mark - You have to realize that I sit at over 6000ft, so, at my altitude, the sun's more intense. For every 1000ft, the sun is 6% more intense, so, at 6000+, I'm around 36% more intense with UV than at sea level. So, on a hot day like today, most of my roses will last from morning to night.. then it's chop chop because they look HORRIBLE. Totally fried.

Toni .......

I am only at 2400ft and my roses fry just as quickly in my triple digit temps. I still love them.

My roses are winding down their 1st flush.. this weekend fried most everyone. I noticed that the reds do not like the heat the worst. They look HORRIBLE. Firefighter, Ink Spots, Mr. Lincoln, Oklahoma are all crispy & yucky looking. Nicole Carol Miller held up the best I think, other than Marilyn Monroe. Most of the mauves are crisped on the edges, but not half as bad as the reds. The oranges held up pretty good, too. The whites, however.. they're shattering left & right. I tried to bring in a White Licorice to my office and every single bloom just went POOF when I cut them. Cha-CHING! is still throwing weird looking blooms.. (see this thread The thread "What is wrong with this rose?" in Roses forum) but Dream Come True seems to be OK. And one rose I wasn't expecting to survive did. I had a teeny little plant coming up through all the mulch & was waiting to see who it was.. and it's Star of the Nile! Yay!! She's sending out tiny little blooms, only about the size of a half-dollar, but still, who cares, she survived! I have a couple of other roses that I don't know who they are so I'm going to have to check out my maps & stuff and see if I still have names because most of the placards I put have faded. Sad I really need to get a better system of labeling my roses! Unfortunately, one of the roses that did not survive was Silverado. She just couldn't survive the extreme harsh winter we had this year. And that's going to be a difficult one to replace.. 1) can't find it locally (or even on order!) and 2) I have Vasillia buried under her, so I don't want to dig her up. Vasillia is probably about 3' down, but still, I don't want to disturb her. My Purple Splash is more like Pink Splash this year.. definitely much more of a raspberry color than purple. Halle & Typhoon are blooming like mad and they're gorgeous this year (only took them like 3 years to get going). Distant Drums .. while I love this rose, is just not that vase-worthy as the blooms seem to explode when you touch them. South Africa is gorgeous, Magenta is showing me tiny blooms (last year they were over 2" across, this year maybe 1.5"?). I thought Hansa was a one-trick pony, but she's blooming constantly. Oh, even my Austrian Copper is sending out a 2nd flush of blooms? Weird!!! I did lose 1 rose from Palatine this year, but everyone else is either in bloom or getting ready to. Leonardo diVinci is definitely not climbing.. he's only about 18-20" tall. Storm Warning is the same way.. definitely not climbing. Most of my climbers don't climb. I thought I completely lost Charles de Mills when I transplanted him and I did lose *that* bush, but since it was an own-root, and apparently I didn't get all the roots when I dug him up, I have a new little CdM growing where he was next to the house! Glad that I didn't lose him. Rose Marie Viaud is still blooming teeny little bitty blooms.. she should have started months ago, but nope, she's going on now. I have a rose growing next to my Ice Girl that I thought was Ice Girl but isn't.. I'm guessing that it's a Moonstone. And I have a rose that's half Dr. Huey and half whatever-it-is, but the problem is that I don't know who it is!

1st world problems...

Yesterday, temps here were in upper 90s, and we may hit 100 today. Always and Forever is new to me this year, and the blooms on it held up beautifully yesterday.
I've been watching my red daylilies to see which of those hold up to blazing sun also.
Oranges and pinks in daylilies and roses both seem to handle tough conditions easily. It's a joy to see red blooms that look fresh at the end of a hot day!

I took time to take some photos this morning, but probably didn't have my camera setting right, so many of them didn't come out well. I'll try to post them when I have more energy. I had to clean the ivy and blackberries out from behind the propane tank today because I was going to get my tank topped off.

I knew it would be a horrid job which is why I had been procrastinating on doing it. It lived up to my expectations .. Grumbling

Here's a shot of Kardinal 85 after a week of triple digit temps. This is the only bloom that opened. All the other buds seem to be just waiting for things to cool off ... not likely.

I caught a shot of Something For Judy before it fried:

That's it for now. I want to see if I can take better photos later on this evening. It's too hot to even think about being outside right now.

Smiles,
Lyn

Did some dead-heading last night, took some pictures of what I had left.

Koko Loco, Rose Marie Viaud (yes, I know she's a single-time bloomer, but this is a "second" flush?)
Thumb of 2014-07-10/Skiekitty/3ec2c9 Thumb of 2014-07-10/Skiekitty/554847

Ketchup & Mustard (holds up VERY well in this heat for a day or so..) and HoneySweet (I Lovey dubby Lovey dubby this rose!)
Thumb of 2014-07-10/Skiekitty/22650d Thumb of 2014-07-10/Skiekitty/938a56

Did some counting, I think I lost about 40 or so roses.. starting to dig up the dead now. I know I lost Silverado (cries), Golden Glow (or something like that), Duftrausch (massive Cliff rose.. the root system was HUGE!!), both Sunny Delites (what is it with the yellows? I don't have hardly ANY yellows left!). However, as I was digging through the mulch to see if the plant was TRULY dead or not, was finding white (sunlight-starved) canes, so uncovered them mostly (not 100% so they hopefully won't get scorched) and let them go. I broke a couple of roses all the way to the graft just by touching them.. it's weird that the canes are *that* fragile! One of them, I don't know who (I was digging around hoping to find the tag but the tag's faded 100%) broke away all the way down, which totally SUCKS. Beautiful rose, I think it's Perfume Delight, but it's much more of a raspberry color than a pink. I know it's not Fragrant Cloud... smells VERY spicy. BTW, what does "damask" supposed to smell like?
