I sit at a breath over 6000ft, so, for most of the country, we're classified as the High Country. Makes for hell in trying to bake a cake.. if you don't add extra flour & water, they always either volcano or sink.
Anyways, I finally finally finally have some blooms worthy of a real parade! Yay for me!
I will need help with one of these roses.. the tag I put faded from the snow.
Anyways, these shots are over a 4 day period. I was in the hospital with surgery on Friday the 17th, so I didn't do much, and it rained off & on the whole weekend so everyone's a bit waterlogged. So you'll see pictures from various days.
These are in alphabetical order and not by order of front yard/back yard/side yard. Everything's mulched, so it's harder to distinguish easily anyways. The red mulch will be the pond area. The front yard sits perfect north, the back yard is south & east, and the side is pure west. Side is pretty heavily shaded in the morning, so I think that's why I lost a few there.
There are very few shots from the back/side due to me not going out there this weekend much. I'll try to get more tonight depending on how I feel (yesterday I felt like crap).
Blue Bayou - front yard
Blue Girl - front yard
Cardinal de Hume - front yard
Ebb Tide - front yard
Europeana - front yard
Gingersnap - back yard
Golden Masterpiece - front yard
Intrigue - front yard
JFK - front yard (one of my oldest roses.. put in '08) so hard to take a picture clearly!
Mardi Gras - front yard (my oldest rose, planted spring '08)
Melodie Parfumee - front yard
Molineux - side yard (excuse my fat paw)
Montezuma - front yard (this was squished flat last year by felling of my aspen)
Orchid Masterpiece - front yard (latter pictures are waterlogged)
Othello - front yard (in the background is Scentimental & Europeana clearly)
Outta the Blue - side yard (true to color)
Paw Maw - side yard
Now this is supposed to be Perfume Delight.. ? - front yard It's pretty waterlogged.. I'll try to get a better picture when I have a new flower bloom. True to color.
Pure Perfume - side yard (excuse my fat paw again) & one of the pictures the camera thought it was upside down?
Ring of Fire - mini bed (front yard but separate from main yard)
Rosy Dawn - mini bed (front yard but separate from main yard)
Sheila's Perfume - front yard
Shockwave - side yard
Singin' the Blues - front yard
Sterling Silver - front yard
Sterling Silver - pond area (back yard)
Sunny Delite - front yard
Tequila Sunrise - front yard (needs to be moved.. too thorny for where it's at!)
Now my mystery. The tag faded due to snow washing it away (hand-written tag). I know it's a hybrid tea and I know that it's in "mauve" family, because in this section I put only "blue" roses there. But there are way too many to go through! Any suggestions? Not very thorny, smells spicy.
