The First Roses of the Year...

 
the beginning,
the first roses of the year...
 
 
all the work pays off...
 
“But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.”
Anne Bronte
 
after a gorgeous weekend away,
I come home to my garden...
 
the very first blooms have opened...
 
a misty morning,
holds the fragrance close to the ground...
 
heavenly.
 

 
 





Gertrude Jekyll is always
 the first true rose to put on a show...
 
here she leans into the gazebo,
 
making this little wicker chair
a perfect place to stop to breath it all in...
 


 
other blooms...
 
this too aggressive Campanula
wins again and has over run my flower bed...
 
a pretty mess...
 




Fox Gloves...
 
even the name thrills me <3
 

 
there is so much to see and enjoy...
and so much to come!
 
anticipation!
 
Stop and Smell the Roses...

Your garden is so lovely. The plants always look so nice with raindrops/dewdrops on them.
