My roses are almost in full bloom right now. Not as spectacular as the spring flush, but still lots of blooms. They've started water rationing, I am going to have to figure out a drip-line system, we can water between the hours of 9 p.m. - 6 a.m. Looks like it is getting ready to rain, I hope so.

SUNSPRITE is the first one

Sara-Ann, please continue to post photos of your roses. They are just gorgeous! I really enjoy them. Wish my JFK looks that good. Most of my roses are blemished from Japanese beetles.

I guess you are a week or so ahead of me. My roses are just beginning to form buds in preparation for the summer blooming cycle. In the meantime, thank you for letting us enjoy your earlier blooming cycle. You are doing such a fine job with your roses that it is no wonder you love to photograph them and show them off to us.

Thanks for sharing your roses! I grew Sunsprite many years ago, the color was always so bright and cheerful. You gotta love the floriferous floribundas!

My mother-in-law, now deceased, used to have several older Peace bushes in front of her house. She would tell me that they were the most beautiful rose. I mentally poo-pooed her thinking, never having seen them, in favor of the newer varies pouring out from J & P and other rose breeders in the 1970s. I went to visit her one time when her roses happened to be in bloom. Her Peace roses were magnificent! The color, size, and form were just perfect. Then I knew why Peace was loved by so many. I always meant to put one in my garden, but alas, still haven't...
