The Garden Gate: The First Rose

Every year when the first Rose blooms then I know that it is Spring. I just love the old Heirloom Roses that still smell like a Rose. Some of the most fun I have had is going to old parks, gardens and yes even cemeteries, to Russell Roses, bring clippings home and root them. My first Rose to bloom this year is my Heirloom Don Juan Climber. It is a beautiful Rose with a heavenly smell.

The John F. Kennedy is a beautiful Rose and takes on many different color tones during the bloom cycle.

There are many other blooms here at The Garden Gate that I really enjoy in the Spring Time.
