Way back when, I posted about receiving new roses for the yard. I planted them, treated them with tender loving care (and a lot of rose spray), and hoped for the best. They didn't bloom much the first year, but I was confident they would overwinter and come back strong.
And then we had a winter from hell. I'm still waiting for consistently warm temperatures. We had a frost warning on June 1. June 1!
But the roses survived, and then some!
Here are the first blooms of the year.
