Here it is May and I already have almost 200 more April blooms to post. I can't post all of them at once, but I'll start doing it in installments and with a minimum of chatter.

This is Acropolis.

And this is Aloha, the Kordes climber. I'm going to post four different blooms, all of which are on the climber at the same time. I think the range of color and design is extraordinary.

I have two hybrid teas named Ambassador. This is the newer one -- Meilland, 1979. The 1930 one isn't blooming yet.

It subsequently undergoes an amazing transformation. Here's a picture from last year to show you how it looks when it's fully open. It looks like a completely different rose.

Here's another rose that goes through a color metamorphosis. This is how Apricot Moon looks at the start.

This is Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday). It probably looks very boring to you, but later on it will have a Clematis 'Vino' growing through it. The two look super together.
