First Rose


My Chicago Peace rose is blooming. I've got three or four full roses on it right now and several other buds just waiting to burst. Ahhh... spring!

PS: Happy Earth Day.

My entire bush is blooming, not as beautiful as your pink rose, so many petals.

The blossom is stunning! It is so bright even in the light of a dull day.

La vie en rose - une film d'Edith Piaf! Vous connaissez?

See very few of them down this way. They require a lot more work with our soil and bugs.

Can't do better than this: a rose, pink and peach, sharp as a tack, with dew drops! Superb!

Jacob said it so well. It is an exquisite photo and rose! And thanks ~Louis~ for the Piaf memory!

A rose is a rose is a rose; or have I said that already? Wonderful photo for Earth Day to show the beauty of an small yet important part of our planet.

Your pink rose is nice. I only have this red knock off rose. It is coming along but will be a while for it to bloom.

The color sure is pretty!

This reminds «Louis» of the line in the e e cummings poem "somewhere I've never traveled"

...as spring opens, touching skillfully, mysteriously, her first rose...

This is lovely! We were in Portland at the rose garden last weekend, and lots of things were blooming, but the roses weren't out yet.
