As a gesture of faith in our permanence here (even thought it might only last another day or two), I'm going to start posting my May blooms, but I'm snowed under with work until June 3rd, so I'll only post about 10 a day.

This is Abracadabra, the "other Abracadabra." Most people only remember the striped Kordes rose because it's so bizarre, but this is a Warriner rose. It was incredibly popular the year it came out and the next year, but then it disappeared.

One more, because I love this rose. This is how it looks before it's fully open.

This is Acropolis. The photo's a bit blurry, unfortunately.

Here's Blaze in the landscape. Some of the other roses in this bed are Playboy, Penelope, and Flutterbye.

I appreciate Burgundy Iceberg's habit of letting some blooms hang upside down because it shows off the pretty reverse on the petals.
