Someone once aksed me whether I had any shame for once accepting a gift of friendship
and then, to my greatest shock and amazement, seeing it tttttransformed into The Most Useful Rose Site In The Universe.
The answer is yes and no.
Peonies and Clematis now? that's a good one!!

Astronomy Picture of the Day. Great Site, one of the greatest.
I remember how cool it used to be to put links to cool things, and now I'm wondering what I was thinking.
I mean, what are the odds you're going to click that link?

It makes my heart Soar Like a Hawk

The Spectacular Juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron in the Apple Tree, late August. This is the deal with this dude: he stayed in that apple tree, right there, for hours. Then I went out and he was gone. The next morning, right as the sun was coming up, I looked out front, and silhouetted against the risen sun, perched on a dead Peace Rose Cane, was Our Friend. I watched him for several minutes, then all of a sudden he just took off like he'd been flying for years, and with great purpose. He was headed for the tree about a hundred yards SE. The next trees East from this one are the Rio Grande Bosque. That's where he was headed, I know in my heart.
That's where he belongs.

Hoot Owl not howling by my window now...Never seen him (her?) before or since.
Another One From the Pecan Tree. Was just walking out to the barn and looked to the right...I believe this was on the day our kitty Joey died. I'd like to think...

The Fastest Mammal and the VLA.

Naked Ladies, 2008. Awesome.
Dancing Lady, 2008. She worked for Jonnie Mae for years and years, greeted people next to the front porch. She was still hiding in that overgrown bush there when I found her Two Years later. She's dancing for us now. I like her Blue Owl.

BigMetalThing, Hancock. I could write a book on what it took to track Cassiopeia A, but this is just as good as it gets.

Jezebel, one of my most devoted and loyal friends EVer.
A Red Stone. Which Was Found 'In the Mountains'. Please name that stone.

RC Cyclone, with Chaco and Burt

Wobbly Goblin Blakjet


The following pics just have to be here. I've tried to take them down before, but just can't doit.

Quince!!--that's how it hits me in spring. Everything will be brown and I look over and there's this screaming bright red outa nowhere!! Love it!
The Pussy Willow and The Forthythia , a gigantic file to gd load, but I like this pic, couldn't chop any of it!!

Socorro Volcano? --M Mountain
M Mountain, a little different.
St. Johns Wort. St. Johnswort. Wicked flowers. The big leaves at the top are its own--lotsa other crap in this pic!! really. The potentilla leaves on the left--another rose cousin--threw me for a second. The purple is larkspur. heheh.
Artichoke and Bumblebee
RedRum, absolutely the reddest spring bush.
Anbody know what it is?
Spring Blooming Buddleia, it actually has a name.
Grew a lot since this pic, next year's going to be outstanding. (Written some years ago now...the latter statement's still true.)
I will finally update this pic in 2007!!
Consider it Updated now...it's 2007. It's grown some.
The Cactus was missing for awhile. It has to be here.
This plant was on somebody's porch on my way to work. I stopped my truck and ran up to the front door and...SNAP!

The Larkspur, More Than 4 years ago. So blue the blues.
Pudd and Friend
Comet Hale-Bopp from the roof
Eclipse. Great Colors.
Another. Eclipse.
Socorro, the sign. Nothing about Socorro says 1598 except this sign.

Burt, Chaco, and the Pussy Willow. And of course, the forsythia.
Firtht things First! The Forthythia, 2003.
Carrizozo, NM, off in the distance, on the left. Those are the Sacramento Mtns, Sierra Blanca, yeah. The highway drops off into the Valley of Fires directly in front. Check your map. heheh.

Ralph Moore The Great. I think it was 1994 --on Mother's Day--when I took this pic. Although Sequoia Nursery was closed, the doors weren't locked and a young man was watering the roses. Being too shy myself to ask if Mr. Moore was around, my sister Mary Jane certainly wasn't, whereupon, to my Great Shock and Surprise, this young person said that he was, and that he would go get him. I was practically speechless when Ralph Moore showed up and spent about an hour showing us around all his Roses--those for sale, as well as all his latest Hybrids growing in common flats in rather small and very hot greenhouses. It was a day I shall never forget--practically Surreal--and Nothing like I ever imagined, having been ordering Roses from Sequoia Nursery for a few years prior. He was such a cheerful Man, and seemed a bit bemused by my enthusiasm and my attempts to explain The Virtual Rose Society (I was wearing our VRS T-Shirt at the time), which was what the "participants" of the Usenet Newsgroup Rec.Gardens.Roses used to call ourselves. I could have stayed much longer, of course, but I didn't want to keep him too long, and my sisters were wanting to see the Giant Redwoods before it got dark, so we bade adieu and left with our armloads of Ralph Moore Roses and A Memory I'll always cherish, to be sure.
And since I pretty much dropped off the Rose Radar around the turn of the Century, I just had No Idea that this Great Man had passed into the Great Beyond on 14 Sep 2009.
It was with Great Sadness--practically disbelief--when I learned this on 9 Jun 2011. Ralph Moore seemed larger than Life. Truly Timeless. Roses To You, Mr. Moore.

Eight Lasers
Worthless Relic, but Brother Rickinlaw and the Rio Grande and Eastern hills and Los Montanos beyond...
It's winter here, you see?

Hermann Goering's Reichsmarshall's Dagger, , this is the real thing, or what remains of it largely. The biggest stones aren't in this pic. My pa confiscated this weapon outa Goering's wife's panties drawer in 1945. This is the most sought after edged weapon of Nazi Germany, bar none.

The Crossed Batons, unquestionably Goering's.
Lieutenant Stephenson, Major Talbott, et al, Germany 1945, IDs at bottom of picture...
Lieutenant General Orwin C. Talbott, Battalion CO, in France c1995

Arrow Points, Spear Points, etc. All came from the Sacramentos, generally behind Alamogordo, New Mexico.

Baby Hawk 2010, one of 2. We heard them when they were tiny, then didn't hear them for many weeks...
their nest is in one of the pine trees along our driveway. Usually the hawks get the nest in early spring, but crows and even Black Crowned Night Herons
have before claimed it. ID'ed as a Cooper's Hawk.
The Two Baby Hawks Before Sunrise...you take what you can get
One of The Babies 2010, already flying Good, both, though both still Jumping Around in The Forest...

The Cleveland Indians. kinda suck. heheh.
On The Trail of R. Stellata. This wouldn't be the home of Mirifica, but on the slopes of these arid juts and peaks lie one of its brother/cousins. This is just north of Las Cruces, right off I-25.
What are they going to do, shoot you?
If you go in, I mean?

moviestar, what it is, maaaaan!

We Ride!!. I think she's got the hand right. My partner Barbara Ellen.

2011 Roses. Yeah right. Still here, tho. Yep.

Trumpeter, I guess I'll restart 2011 with this one, which is from 2007, but since one of my faves in The Universe has gone to the Great Sky Garden, I thought it appropriate to show it a last time...
Iceberg. The -14 Temps of Feb 2011 took its toll but gave us this one...
Nicole, I just don't know how a rose could be more beautiful, honestly. Awesome output this year.
Nicole another.
Floradora, the Historic Orange-Red Rose responsible for All Those Roses In This Shade, that's a fact! Finally an Honest Pic, after years of disappointment...
Yolande d'Aragon The prettiest rose this unit's ever put out...since the -14 temps almost kilt it off entirely, all its energy was put into this rose...
Mitsouko, A Japanese seedling of Peace
Showbiz, This little rose somehow cranks out the reddest reds imaginable year in, year out. How it does it is hard to say...
Sexy Rexy, Knockdown Shockdown, maybe not from its overwhelming beauty, but just the fact that there it WAS, still alive, still blooming!!! !! A Sam McGredy IV Rose
Sharon's Delight, a Ralph Moore shrub creation and often called the miniature Sally Holmes
Lynn Anderson, Died to the ground with the February Temps of -14, then popped about 5 New Basals and put out this one...
Voodoo...No small miracle that Voodoo experienced Resurrection. 'Completely gone' 2 years ago.
Rosa......must consult my map, can nevah remember this gift rose from Kim Rupert. Impervious to extremes, Grey-Green foliage, rather large white blooms
Rosa......Up close on the previously described Kim Rupert Rose
Rosa......Another Kim Rupert Rose, lives right next to the Previously described Rose but Waaaay Different. Refuses to get higher than 4 inches tall and never wider than a 4-inch pot. The most amazing thing is that it's spreading, which you can see to the NW in this pic...Mind you This Rose is over 10 years old...
Rosa Alba Semiplena, this year's Rendition of The Giant
Leda...The Damask Rose which I do believe will Long Outlive me. Mucho stoloniferouso, right down into the Rio Grande Irrigation Ditch, which parallels
Trier..A single flower from among thousands. The -14 Temps didn't do it any good--looks a little sickly this year-- but this giant will recover, I'm certain
Trier...showing a little dieback, which was evidence of its Distaste for the Absurd Temps from Feb 2011
Paris d'Yves St. Laurent 2011...still doing it

Geranium...A Hybrid Moyesii Half-Brother of Nevada. A Huuge Thing which I let go where it wants

Pink Meidiland, one rooted by The Donald long ago
Scarlet Meidiland, The Red Creeper Rose, maybe you might call it a Ground Cover Rose. A Vicious Unit, No Dieback EVer, EVen in -14 Temps
Anytime, Dripping Red in the Bud, Sam McGredy's Recommendation was to cross your Favorite Floribunda with this Unit. Hence my purchase years back...
I've never actually done it, btw...

Priscilla Burton 2010, garishly red here. The -14 Temps didn't quite kill it, so I might see it again...
Heirloom, this one was from Oct 09, before of since like this, never
Paul McCartney, tremendously fragrant, huge, -14 Hardy. For me, very elusive, the color most times a lie...
Girl Scout, 21 Dec 2009
Nicole in 2009. It's now 2011 and it's never stopped doing this...
General McArthur, the climber...Fashion is the much smaller rose to the right. Years and years they've grown together.
Rose Great Scott, Sport of Cleo.
Rock 'n Roll, a Carruth rose, now evidently reclassified, came out a decade ago, now gaining prominence.
Blaze, or should I say Blazes? Once again you can see there were originally two plants. Sad in a way...
Eye Paint. Years ago, this was the first rose I ever moved from its original location. Found its stride here.
Jonnie Mae and behind, Paris d'Yves St. Laurent, the rose which still hangs in. Jonnie's a transplant from High Rolls, NM.
How Bizarre!!, I hadn't figured out what these were, but Peter Harris informed me
that these spiked balls growing out of the ends of the leaves of this wild rose are malformations caused by the
rose wasp. That the rose could do this in reaction to an attack heaps amazement upon amazement, ime.
The wasp larvae are inside the balls.
Olympiad 2008, one of my most memorable Olympiad ever.
Soleil d'Or 2008...kinda twisted and tortured by the late freeze, but there you go. Still here.

Cl. Rainbows End, Eye Paint, Sparrieshoop, many others...
6-Petalled Mme. Caroline Testout. SHOCKing and Beautiful. Usually Very Double, and waaay different.
Mercedes Gallart, possibly the most shocking rose of 2007, if just by its presence. A
------------------Certain Testament to the Toughness, Tenacity, and just plain Awesome Beauty of The Rose. If I were not so certain
------------------I'd kill it if I moved it, I'd move it. I may yet move it, I have an excellent Success Rate at that. Lots of Experience.
Girl Scout, yeah, still rather small, a little shy, it just never changes.
Pharoah's the Killer Here,, but one might even see Floradora...
Strawberry Ice. Yeow. I think I'm going to Dairy Queen.
Eclipse. This one's got a certain Wow factor to it. Extraordinary for This Unit.
L'Aimant...you ain't ever seen dis one, any amount...

The Once Bloomers doing their Once Blooming. Fritz Nobis, Alba Semi-Plena, R. Arkansana, et al
General Macarthur with a Fashion Splash. The shade did some strange things to Color General--
------------------it's way redder than that, but I just had to show Alice this Rose. She started it. A vicious, vicious Rose. You can just
------------------see the AZ Ash to the right. It's been an epic battle. If I hadn't unknowingly planted it on the same day Jon Kirst died,
------------------I woulda whacked it long ago. That was 1994. It's no smaller now than when it had full sun. Incidentally. Incredibly.
Sharon's Delight, Fall 2007. I'd thot it done for the year. Made me smile, I remember. The Mini Sally Shwub.
Petrose...should be proud. Katherine Zeimet, the Polyantha. One he left me 10 years ago.
Bonica Reborn, April 2007. Buck and Sandy came down, Buck Aced the Cottonwood. Which see.
A Lotta Shades of Piaget, that's what I'd say...
Frau Dagmar Hartopp. As ever. With the candy stick buds.
The Rio G Rose and Yolande de Aragon are basically the left and right of tihis pic, but an unlikely
------------------Henry Martin in between them is actually skying some blooms. Yolande's a way-later bloomer.
The Rio and Henry and Yolande and even Pink Meidelland...
Katherine Zeimet, another of the little fool. Light and Season, there's your color.
Another Rio Grande Valley Colonizer, this one found by J Nowicki. I'm not exactly certain whether
------------------this one is colonizing by root or by seed, but it's not wildly rampant like the maniacal R. Arkansana.
Cl McGredy's Sunset, doing whatever it wants to do. Probably forever.
Nevada. It may be hard to believe after all these years, but...there you are.
Billowy Nevada. The White Rose in a class of its own.
ROSA FOETIDA 2007!!!. Utterly shocking. Disappeared several years ago, the Huey u see grew
------------------in its wake. I don't understand, Master. I hope to see it in 2008. Obviously.
R. Foetida, Reprise. The Real Deal.
Fritz Nobis. Had plans for this rose, and it's exceeded all expectations.
And Fritz again. Every year it grows and becomes more of what it's supposed to be.
Gypsy Dancer, that's what I remember. Love this rose,
------------------it's been growing bout a dozen years, always this size, blooms great, then rests a long time in the Shade. Tough as Nails.

Galaxy, Glowing Candy Apple Red, and a scar from the baseball hail of October 5, 2004.

They let you know that this is what you're going to be missing when I check out.

Mr. Lincoln. The Red Rose. And this one particularly so.
Leda Colony, it's very cool what this rose has done to adapt to the obvious.
Trumpeter, still and always the Supreme Red Orange Blast
Winter Magic, it's almost lavender and sometimes somewhat tan. "The color of death."
Winter Magic, maybe a more traditional view. Like I said, almost lav.
Every Pixel Tells a Story, Iceberg and many things. Many Final Warnings.
Fritz Nobis. I putfritz where he is to do a job, and there is no instant gratification with a rose.
Oeillet Flamand, one of the rare SPOTTED roses of the euniverse.
When Blaze was a babe. And Mirandy and Cl. Peace. This view far from exists anymore. I kinda miss it, I kinda don't. This musta been 87 or 88. The roses have grown up. Adopted children.

For the SKeptical. Peace.

Another ScarleMo, no MiniMoss comes close..........
New Year. Maybe it's easy to see how endearing this thing can be, maybe it's not.
