Anticipating the bloom of the rose

Spring is about renewal. Awakenings. Beginnings. Hope. Anticipation.

This rose is the most watched item in our garden right now. Several times a day we both stop and check on it in anticipation of what we know is to come.



And this one.


Look at how many buds there are…and this isn’t all of them.



Exciting. And this is what is to come! One plant! Three colors. This year it is much healthier than last year so who knows…perhaps it will be even more spectacular!


“I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.”  ~Ruth Stout

  1. Mucho trabajo hoy Xan…

    La preciosa frase del final, de Ruth Stout, me recuerda que ese precioso rosal fué un regalo de nuestra amiga, que también se llama Ruth :))


    Cuando venga a Viladellops te la presentaremos 🙂
