Spireas, cannas, hibiscus, coneflowers, blanketflowers, gardenias, hydrangeas, pavonia, and many more flowers are still blooming and bringing color and cheer to the garden.
Last month I posted a list of roses that were blooming at that time. I wondered which roses would be blooming again this month. There are fewer roses blooming now than there were last month, although I have begun watering them faithfully.
Why would there be fewer roses blooming? Well, since then, we have had temperatures of over 100 degrees F every day. Some of the blooms are smaller, but they are still cheerful!
This is a list of roses blooming today:
*Carnival Glass (mini)
*Cinco de Mayo
Flower Carpet (Appleblossom)
*Knockout (double red)
*Mrs. Dudley Cross (old garden tea)
Red Cascade (mini climber)
* In bloom for last month's post also.

Roses may look delicate, but they are tough workhorses in my garden.
