I've added a page about roses at the top, so if you like roses (and really, who doesn't?), then it's worth a look.
But, this week - wow! The sun shone, and those promising, teasing rosebuds that were slowing appearing in May started to flower. I took photos of the first two roses to open, but despite my many attempts, I couldn't get the settings right in the evening light, so you can't really see the detail of the white rose or the beautiful peachy colour of the second rose. I'll keep practising and hopefully my 'difficult light' photos will get better!
Both of these roses smell gorgeous and the scent has wafted indoors because of the warmth of this week. It's been lovely. And there are even more roses opened up now.
