How are you liking your new additions this year?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who adds new roses to the garden every year despite ever-so-limited ground space available!
Now that most of our roses have had their first flush, how do you feel about your new additions this year? Let’s hear the good, the bad, and all that’s in between!
I’ll start first with “fun in the sun”, who I got this spring as a bare root rose, planted in north-facing part sun. It has so far surpassed my expectations, producing large amounts of old fashioned blooms whose color varies from a peachy yellow to cream and blush. She has been very healthy, and I like how the blooms are fragrant even in their first year.
