John Davis

John Davis explorer, July 2006

Today, John Davis (explorer rose) returned! Of all the roses, he was the last to appear this spring - I was worried. A profuse bloomer, the buds appear at first to be red, almost like little cherries. They're small flowers, but abundant and perfectly delicate - and pink! Now I have such a sense of hope for all the plants I moved, and eager to prepare the rose beds.

OOOHH! Caroline! I was sooo excited to see John Davis return yesterday!!! There are some leaves uncurling even...and small buds all over it. More survived than I thought...I'm so happy!
