Roses doing better than expected

After complaining a couple of weeks ago about my roses "just sitting there", they are doing the opposite. They are setting on gobs of buds. I haven't done anything but applying Mills Rose Magic in the early spring and fertilizing after the first bloom cycle. The change in the weather would have to be the reason. I was a little concerned about my Tiffanys, but they have begun to set on new buds, even JFK, which I wasn't expecting at all. It even looks like most of my old garden roses are going to bloom again soon, I wasn't sure what to expect with them. I hope I don't come across as being boastful, because I don't take credit at all. I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing dramatic changes for the better with your roses?

After a terrible spring (hard freeze), everything that wasn't killed is really coming back and looking good. Especially my OGR's, mini's and minifloras and a couple of HT's have gone crazy (Gemini, Let Freedom Ring, Dark Night and Remember Me).

Ken - Glad to know that your roses are doing good. Would love to see pictures when they bloom. I love it when my roses surprise me in a good way.
