Almost First Roses of the Season

May 14, 2014

After weeks of watching the buds grow on the rose bushes around my yard, the (almost) first roses of the season finally burst forth today in bright and beautiful glory.

I say that these are my “almost” first roses because I actually found the very first roses of the season a couple of weeks ago when I was checking for aphids (nasty, nasty little things). During the rounds, I found two blooms that had opened and were almost spent on the underside of one rose bush near my house. Since no one could see them without practically doing a handstand, I decided that they shouldn’t count. 🙂
