First Rose!

This cold spring we’ve been having means that everything is late–combine that with a hard pruning I gave all my roses and I’ve had to wait much longer than usual for my first rose of the year. I have about 25 rose bushes, and many of the bud heads are really bulging, but these blooms on my Everblooming Cecile Brunner are the first to unfurl. Hurrah!

I don’t really like the composition of this photo–I’m using my 50mm prime lens rather than my zoom lens–so I cropped it down to just one bud in the photo below, but I’m not loving that one either because of the big old white railing right down the middle. Ah well.
