First roses of spring are blooming in the perennial garden!
They are beautiful, radiant dots of colour amidst the greenery at this time of year.
Much has been written of the rose for all its beauty and its thorns.
The last roses of summer have been saluted in song, a fitting tribute to be sure.
However, I have decided to post this first rose of this garden season for those of you who have stopped by for a read.
