First Rose of Spring 2012

I always photograph the first flower that blooms in my garden, ususally produced by Cranky. This year Lady decided to pre-empty her and produced a lovely little pink bud:

Lady is my one-day only show rose bush; everything she produces falls apart in 24 hours whether I cut them for the house or not so I generally leave her blooms on the bush:

The heat this morning made her bud open very fast, and it's smaller and droopier than the blooms she was producing last year, so I think it's time to prune and fertilize her. Still, a happy sight. Winter is officially over here:
