Rose time

It’s the time of roses. Washington is ablaze right now with these lovely roses in bright pinks and reds. They seem to flourish without any work at all–the bushes in my neighbor’s tiny yard are overwhelmed with blossoms, and I can’t imagine the residents put any work into those plants. What’s best is that these aren’t the big, pretentious roses you see at the flower shops; instead, they’re like wild roses–flatter, humbler, and, in my opinion, lovelier.

    Our Roses are just throwing off buds, but the neighbor’s vine rose is in full bloom and a wonder to behold. The azaleas in my garden didn’t bloom this year, which was a huge bummer, but I am loving the coming of the roses, and of my lavender! Hooray for spring flowers.
