And the first rose of the year was…

…Abraham Darby! Again.

I have almost cheated because I didn’t want to repeat. Don’t take me wrong, the Abraham Darby rose is just wonderful but, again?

It must be the location, because even after waiting already for days —more than a week actually— and there was no other rose near opening.

Perhaps it is better protected against the weather, perhaps it gets more sun. Who knows, but it is the earliest by far.

Here you have it, beautiful like a rose!

The curious thing is that after the week, every bush in the garden started to flower like mad. They knew they were in a competition of sorts. Clever girls.

Happy spring, everybody.
