Just LOVE the first roses of the season; picked a vase full of the most fragrant old fashioned, big blousy pink roses blooming in my garden.  I'll be picking roses for bouquets from now until November, but that first vase full is always my favorite, after a long, wet winter!  

Have thousands of buds on my other bushes (have well over 50 rose bushes, mostly antique roses, with a few modern hybrid teas); they'll all be blooming soon -- June is most definitely my favorite month of the year!
