That flower bloom finally burst open! Here's the result.
What is it? Any ideas? It's a lovely shade of magenta, that's for sure. There are others coming along right behind it soon.
This is a tea rose that I got on 1/2 price sale at Lowe's the other day. It's blooming so pretty, too, and seems to be fine. I haven't planted it yet, still trying to decide where. Those are the Dwarf Sunflowers right behind it. I can see the blooms starting to form on those - the plants are about knee high.
Do you ever hit the 1/2 price racks in Lowe's garden area? They have some plants that still look pretty good and with a little TLC they perk right up.
