The First Rose of Spring

“Won’t you come into my garden? I would like my roses to see you.” – Richard Brinsley Sheridan

What a delight this morning to go out to the garden after breakfast and discover the buds on my Mr. Lincoln rose wide open. Mr. Lincoln is a sturdy tea rose bush with fragrant deep red roses, regarded by many as one of the best roses of all time. ┬áIt’s truly lovely!
