One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Rosa setipoda x Hemslyana....lovely delicate flowers on a fairly coarse thorny shrub
We're in the third week of May and it is rose season. The early bloomers are finishing up but still have presence, excepting Rosa primula, and the mid and late season taxa are spectacular. Some Peonies still hang on, as do some species Iris and the tall bearded Germans are just peaking. Spectacular goings on in the garden!
