Rose in the Garden

Mirabile dictu, there's a rose blooming in the garden this morning, the first bloom of the season on the Abraham Darby rose which resides in the garden behind the little blue house in the village.

What colour, what size, what perfect form, and how I wish I could share its incredible old rose fragrance with you too.

They are lovely, aren't they?

Just looking at this beauty I think I can catch a wiff of its sweet fragrance... Thanks for sharing!

I nearly ordered an Abraham when I went on my recent rose ordering frenzy, but I had to draw the line somewhere!

It is truly lovely! I may have to get one next year. I am here from the "Garden Stroll." I wrote about roses too.
