Not very imaginative this evening

So here's some rioting redness for y'all.



Two days earlier it was a shy bud like this:


Sweet dreams.

Good grief! There's a riot going on here - a riot of flowers and colors. I refer to earlier posts, too.

God knows I sometimes feel like rioting, Mimi, and sometimes I am simply riotous. You, my dear, are often a laugh riot. Should the authorities be warned about us?

it's margaret said...

Yes. About the both of you!
Love your rose Paul.

Grandmère Mimi said...

And also with you, Margaret.

Rioting is a good word, indeed. For the rose, yes.

For you and Grandmère Mimi, definitely!

what is the variety, Paul? (I am about to get seriously involved with Canadian Hardy i.e. sub-zero roses...they get lovelier and lovelier...hooray for agricultural experimental stations, I say!)

Alas, Crimson Rambler, I don't know. That tag must have detached when I planted this rose and it has remained a mystery. Unlike the crimson of the Blaze rose, this one is definitely scarlet, an orange-tint to the intense red. It is one of the new ones I planted this spring. I do know that the roses appear singly on long stems. Alas, I do not even understand rose nomenclature and categories. I just plant them and enjoy them.
