First Roses Of 2016
There is an added significance to the first roses....
Surely one of the favorite flowers of Americans is the rose.
All roses are beautiful, but the very first roses of the season are such a shocking reminder of why we plant them, that they take on a special aura all their own.
I view the blossoming of the first roses right at the top of the list, along with the return of the barn swallows and the hummingbirds at my home in the Rocky Mountains, as the sure signs that the seasons are still on the right track.
Spring has arrived. Summer will follow.
It's time to get the rest of the gardens planted..

My mountain is my thermometer. It's right there, visible, and telling me the change of seasons as well or better than my thermometer can.
Our eyes will take in the April blossoms which are so welcome after the long winter months, and make the vivid memories we tap when at last another cold winter rolls around. Photos help.
