Yes, it's already May! Sneaked up on me. Lets hope all the frost and cold problems are a thing of the past now and the bloom parade can commence in earnest.

And I agree @IrisLilli this is the perfect May photo to start off the thread!

Happy May Day!
It's too windy to hang baskets on doors, so I put my surprise bouquets in vases. I'm enjoying the trifecta here in Kansas--roses, peonies and iris all at once! The tree peonies finished last week, and the Itohs are in full glory now. I have several early peonies open, plus some confused midseason ones. The shrub roses are in full flush.
We ended up with 5" of rain in the past few days, along with a hard frost that didn't seem to do too much damage. The poor people in western Kansas have a foot of snow! Our Rose Society is waiting on a group order from High Country roses, and it's delayed because of all the snow out in Denver. Our sale is next Saturday, so I hope it gets here on time.
I'll take some pictures and head to McDonalds where wifi is good enough to upload multiple photos. Hurray!
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Despite all the rain we got this weekend and the crazy wind today. I was able to get in the yard and plant the last 2 roses bushes. I noticed that the Sunsprite was already getting growth on it so I wanted to get it in the ground quickly.

Steve, I love seeing roses casually intermingling with other flowers like that! Sweet combo!
