I think we may be approaching Peak Rose. Things are popping into bloom all over the place. The rose garden by the kitchen door is coming along nicely--the society garlic and oxeye daisies are filling in between the roses and are starting to bloom.
'Fourth of July' is starting to flower up with its summery blossoms splattered with cherry red.
'Sombreuil' is covered in buds and has interestingly peachy-greeny tones before it opens.
The 'Tinka' cluisiana tulip is showing its butter-yellow interior.
And the weather is heating up--it was in the 80s over last weekend.
