Polka: First of Self's Roses to Bloom

Three of the roses in the front yard turn out to have more staying power than self anticipated.  These are:  Flower Carpet Apple Blossom, Winsome, and Gertrude Jekyll.  They had no new shoots, a month ago.  Self even gave up on watering them.  But now all three have vigorous new growth.

The one disappointment:  the clematis montana rubens has only half the number of blooms it had last year.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
