I never promised you a rose garden

The roses are blooming right now, earlier than normal of course, just like everything.  The red “rugosa” root stock rose that sprung from my white tree rose on the patio has burst into bloom and in short order is going to be covered in flowers.

One of my Hybrid T’s in the front bed put out a bloom today with another on the way.

And the carpet roses are about to burst into bloom, with this little one showing the way.

It would appear to be red all around right now but Ms. Lady Banks is also in bloom, albeit fading a little now,

She is going to be in for a severe haircut once the blooms have faded as she appears to have completely overwhelmed my famous 25cent Lantana with her canes, which of course I cannot allow to happen.   I am wondering if I can stick the cuttings in the ground and see if they root?  I suppose I have absolutely nothing to lose with that experiment.  I might just go for it.
