Here in Colorado we are behind most of the USA in "what's up and blooming" now. Our roses won't be blooming for several months........but when they do they will bloom well into the fall.
Our perenials are just coming along out of the ground. Part of this has to do with our very cool nights. This is also why flocks of people come here on vacation. I lived in Spring, Texas where you could walk outside at night in the summer and it would be 100 degrees. Here it is a lovely 70 degrees or less at night. The day lilies my daughter-in-law gave me in the fall all survived in spite of being in plastic bags outside in the winter and not getting planted for four months. Gardening is so much fun - I love getting my fingers in the dirt!
