A Little Late, But Worth the Wait

Our first roses of the season!

Last year they were in full bloom by the beginning of June.

But right now things are just opening up.  

Our climbing rose has one fully opened flower.  It looks a bit lonely.

I can't believe how much growth this rose has put on after the drastic pruning I did at the end of Winter.

It's growing like a weed.

Ditto for this little boy.

Who was also worth the wait.

P.S.  This week XiXi put together his longest sentence to date:
"Mom, Cholita said she doesn't want to brush her teeth."

We've found that when it comes to tattling, the language barrier disappears.

Way to go XiXi!

Its not just your roses, over on the other side of the Sound, the farm I work at is 3 weeks behind last year, which was 3 years behind the normal growing season.
