Re: everybody outside today?

Didn't enter it as a miniature, but I don't argue with judges ; )
I wouln't allow it in a petite show either. I was just lucky to have a
branch with only 3 spent blossoms & many just open & fat buds. I nipped the
spent blooms, a side branch with hard buds & the bottom leaves and it was
just gorgeous. The 1st place & best of class were as a polyanthus. I think
the Donny Barstow recognizes best specimen rose overall? I have to look that
one up.
