The Early Roses

Not all roses get cut back and stripped every year in my gardens, and those that aren't show their appreciation by blooming early in the season. This Scotch Rose (rosa spinosissima) which is a climber starts it's once a year bloom in March before any of the other roses are open. It is an early sign of things to come that is much appreciated!

I love the simplicity of that rose. I have three in that catagory, which name escapes me at the moment, Cocktail, Kathleen and Dainty Bess.

Happy you are seeing spring in your gardens.
