In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
This is the first rose to bloom in our garden this spring. We've had this particular rose plant for quite a few years and it always grows tall and busy with lots of blooms. Currently there are multiple buds on each stem. I wonder if I'm supposed to 'deadhead' roses like I do the peonies in order to thin out the blooms.
