Back on February 28th I noticed the first signs of life on the rose bush outside the kitchen doors. At some point between yesterdays blip and today's one of the roses blossomed! One hundred and five days have passed for nature to do it's thing! It is absolutely plastered in rose buds, I suspect there will be more blips of this rose. If anyone wants to ID the type I would be more than happy. We reckon it's a dog rose of some kind.
