Wordless Wednesday: Some First Blooms

I have a rose garden. P has been giving me rose bushes since we bought this house. Some of them have bloomed already and I thought I’d share those blooms today.


McCartney — named for Linda, not Paul. A deep pink


Pretty in Pink — a pale pink, reminds me of a formal dress I wore a long time ago.


Neptune — my first lavender rose. I adore Sterlings, but they’re hard to find. This was a substitute that is turning out well.


Sheer Magic — pinkish, reddish, yellowish — absolutely gorgeous.

Still waiting for blooms: Rio Samba, Oklahoma, Kennedy, Lincoln, Midas Touch, and Peace.
