Here they are -- my Dortmund climbing roses. They have names. From left to right (north to south): Carla, Wanda, Penny, Mary, Heidi and Martha. They are rose ladies who will spread their thorny stems along the split rail fence and explode with red petal bunches this summer.
The ladies. My sisters. I am blessed.

Our neighbors have daffodils all over their farm here at the Lake Huron shore. Sheila's mother used to throw the extra daffodils down the side of the crevice that runs just south of their house. In this protected spot, away from the wind, these daffodils blossom first. You can kind of get an idea of daffodils in the wild from this photo which I took this morning.

I not only got to see both semis and finals for Independent and World Open, but also watched the World Class finals with Pete and Clay on Saturday night.
