My first rose blooms

A Chrysler Imperial, My first Hybrid- T of the year. This is my second favourite rose in my Garden.

The Explorer Rose Frontenac. These are just beautiful. The best part they require no winter protection, and very disease resistant. A must have in a Canadian or Northern Garden.


  1. I agree Explorer roses are the best. I grow four varieties of them. They smell nice too.

  2. I have several Explorers in the garden. Something of a collection. This one happened to be the first to bloom. They are my favourite rose as it really is a "plant it and forget almost rose"

  3. i love all roses sonny.
    they are the sweetest smelling, even better than lilacs!
    these roses of yours are so gently fragile and innocent! terry
