The First Wave Has Arrived.

I got a box of 5 roses from RVR yesterday. All the bands were big, healthy and lightly peppered with bright red aphids. The newcomers include:

Alba Rose "Blanche de Belgique":


With three whole flower buds!

Gallica Rose "Belle Isis":


With at least 4 flower buds!

The real Hybrid Musk Rose "Aptos" (the one we have is an unregistered seedling):


With many little flower buds!

David Austin English Rose "Constance Spry":


No flower buds...

Another "Capitaine John Ingram":


Because our current specimen got nearly obliterated by falling snow over the winter. It's very much alive but is now the shortest Capitaine John Ingram, ever.
