This week I finally have red roses blooming.
My yellow roses have been blooming for a couple weeks now and I have really been waiting for the red ones to open up. I especially have been waiting to smell them as they smell wonderful.
Here is the rose starting to slowly open on Monday.
On Tuesday it was a bit more open.
On Wednesday the rose was really starting to open. Unfortunately the petals have a lot of damage. This is often the case with the first roses as they are slow to open.
The rose also started to put off the wonderful strong scent that Mister Lincoln roses have.
Yesterday the rose was almost fully open and in the shade had a nice dark red shade. Oh, it smelled so good.
Here is the rose bush today. You can see that many other blooms are starting to open. It will be very colorful and fragrant tomorrow.
I am glad that I finally have my nice red roses blooming again. Especially as I have so much time to enjoy them this year.
