I Promised You a Rose Garden - The Whole Schmear

I promised you a rose garden, and here it is.  The whole thing.  Except there are dozens of bushes that haven't blossomed yet.  I even gave you a sample of one of those in the last frame.

I will admit it.  I am hooked on photographing the roses.  It started last year and continued through the season when I showed the last of the blooms standing tall and reaching for the sun so as to be noticed.

I started this season photographing little twigs sticking up in the soil, and followed one bush as it strugged to bloom.  That twig has become the bush in the first picture, and the rest are some of the bushes around it.

I kept my promise.  Here's your Rose Garden.
