Bold Roses

Came home from work last night to find that my rambling roses had exploded into bloom. They're very pale pink and they looked spectacular (by the standards of my garden) even in the dark as I drove up.

Last year (first season) they bloomed a little, and then grew like crazy everywhere, up to the second floor, pushing up against a window, etc.

I like their doing this all at once, instead of tiptoeing out, a few and then a few more. It seems both bold and generous.

Peggy, that sounds like such a beautiful gift from nature. Are they fragrant, as well?

Happy Saturday!

Not fragrant, Debbie, but I put some honeysuckle in a vase with roses so now I'm enjoying a fragrance called Honeysuckle Rose.
