rose

It’s not from this year, but it certainly gives the impression of winter.  It seems like I should be sad for the rose, but I’m not.  It didn’t quite have enough time to fully blossom when the force of winter took over, and that’s OK.  I like winter too.  It lends a certain air of beauty to the scene, don’t you think.

Over the years I have planted quite a few roses in our yard.  Some would say too many.  But I love the fragrance and elegance and color and just shear beauty that they offer each year.  Their first flush of bloom in the spring is truly a sight to behold.  And their fragrance…. if only you could smell what you see on your screen.  This particular one is called cymbeline and has one of the most unusual and sweet fragrances to be found.  In fact, if you’re looking for a place to purchase roses with some flair beyond what you can find at your local big box store I highly recommend www.vintagegardens.com for an inventory of 100’s of old and antique roses.
