In Full Bloom

My local rose garden, happily just one and half miles from my house, so I enjoy it frequently. These photos are from 7 a.m. this morning, with the garden half lit by sunlight and half still in shade. There were already two people there taking photographs--I'm sure theirs came out much better with their fancy camera. By the time I left, a half dozen more people were enjoying the fragrant, early morning coolness and stupendous beauty. I have four rosebushes in my yard, but I'd love to have even more.

  1. Beautiful flowers! we're just starting to have the early spring flowers coming up here. Daffodils and some others (not sure of the name of the one type of flower, but there's a group of white ones, some light purple ones, and darker purple ones.)
