Roses

I thought I'd share the first rose of the season from my garden with all of you. My daughter and her family gave me this rose bush about four years ago. I struggle with the rabbits, grasshoppers, aphids, crickets, alkaline dirt, wind and a too hot sun to keep this bush going. I am always thrilled to see it bloom.

I know just how it feels, and that rose is even more beautiful for all the care and attention you provide it.

Don't you love a rose's vibrant, yet delicate color? You make me jealous! I am patiently waiting for warmer weather, well maybe not so patiently!

Our roses are so brown and bare under piles of snow yet. How beautiful to see yours.

Btw, there is an award for you on my latest post. I'm hoping your eyes are okay for you to do this now.
