The First Rose

This is a picture of the first rose of the season. It is a beautiful pink and smells heavenly. I make sure to never use chemicals or commercial fertilizers. Instead I use organic compost that I make all winter long from scraps. I also supplement the soil directly with crushed eggshells and coffee grounds. The rest of my rose bushes are showing promise with lots of buds that are yet to bloom.
