First Roses

Seems like it's been an excellent Spring for flowers. The tulips and iris did great, and the roses are going nuts. Here are a few of the first blooms.

The local fad is to name your rose bushes - "Glorias's Bounty" "Miss Miami Valley" "Passion Ruby". If the neighbors ask, I think I'll call these Manny, Yonkl, & Simche.

Oh, you Southerners! Our Irises are just starting. I don't have many roses because of the shade. Over the years I have found a few that can cope with both the cold and the shade. One of my favorites is a heritage rose I call Winnie Nolting, named for the long dead neighbor who a start of it to me.
