I'm a day late and a dollar short . . .
This is a Cinco de Mayo rose which I should have posted yesterday and then posted Kimesville Dam today. Cinco de Mayo completely fell off my radar until I walked into the office yesterday and saw that some of the cubicles in a near office had Cinco de Mayo ballons and posters.
The Cinco de Mayo was the 2009 All-American Rose Society winner. It was hybridized from Julia Child (a bright yellow rose) crossed with Topsy Turvey (bright red rose). I wish I could get a better picture of the reverse as the red fades to a bright yellow where the flower meets the stem.
I bought this at the seed and feed store at the end of the summer where they were practically giving away plants for free.
