This is the first rose to bloom in our garden this year. It’s an antique rose named Sombreuil.

Sombrueil - First rose of the year


I worked as a landscape contractor for many years and during that time I built a substantial garden at our house. Since I’ve stopped gardening, I’ve left the garden go wild to a large extent but since I landscaped mostly with shrubs and trees, the bones of the garden are still there and, if you don’t look too closely, it still is quite nice. It’s at it’s best right now as the roses and flowering trees start to bloom and before the weeds take over.
