Pretty pictures of the day

Earlier today, I was hanging out under some very lovely trees that were shedding some truly obnoxious pollen.  I now have a stuffy nose, a constricted chest, and a very fuzzy brain, which means that I will not attempt to write anything of substance.  Instead, I offer some photos of my roses.

I haven’t been gardening for very long, but I’ve learned that first bloom is always the best:  before the summer sun has scorched the petals, before the earwigs have paid their annual visit.

These roses make me both proud and happy.  I feel like a grandma who just can’t help showing off her photos to anyone who will look.

Wouldn’t they look great at the feet of a Mary statue?
