The Big Girl Awakens.

Guess Who! by Leenechan

This is the first of Evelyn's 17 buds to open, and it's one of the smaller ones! The color seems a lot more orange and less pink this year. Oh, me and my orange roses...

I cut this one for a vase right away, because we're supposed to get Big Rain again tomorrow. Since we haven't been getting the ridiculously hot temperatures so far this year, Evelyn's new canes are growing in thicker and straight up rather than flopping around like an octopus' tentacles. We have her tied to a fan trellis now. It's hard to believe that this is only her second year.
