Wow, Mike! What a great beginning - and terrific photos too as usual. That is the best picture I think I've ever seen of Cinco de Mayo.

And we just deadheaded Golden Celebration a couple of weeks ago! What a difference location makes.

Some of our roses are ramping up for a second flush of bloom now.

Looking great, Mike. One and all. I love the "bouquet" habit of some of these.

I got a Cinco de Mayo last year, so I'm just seeing it for the first time this year. It's a splendid rose.

I love that Tuscan Sunset.
And the "unknown" lavender colored one looks like Angel Face to me, but you said it's a miniature, so I reckon not.

Life is too short, no matter how long we're here. PLAY HARD and LOVE someone, with everything you got!
