Our roses are awakening after their winter pruning and subsequent spring growth spurt. They have lots of greenery but until this week none of them had bloomed. Finally, one gave us some flowers, and there are buds on several more.
Our neighbors, meanwhile, have an extremely unusual azalea in their front garden. Have you ever seen one this color? I'm not sure I have. It's really nice.
Hey -- I sold a picture! Someone contacted me via Flickr to buy this image for use in a real estate brochure. I negotiated with them but took it all with a grain of salt, until yesterday when they deposited £50 in our bank account. "Wow!" I thought. "This is real!"
