and it had to survive a severe storm! But here's what's left of it, a bit beat up, but not bad considering what it went through.

Really nice! Can't believe you had such a fancy one open up first. I always thought the plainer ones bloomed first.

Most years it's Paper Butterfly and/or Charles Johnston (Sp?) that opens first for me.

My paper butterfly ffo was June 19.Bought it late last year.
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Dilemma has a much nicer bloom today, although it opened in yet another rain storm, just not as severe.

Thanks Leslie, I've had a few more bloom, but they're just getting started.
