The Rose

The First Rose of Spring

Rose:  "Nicole"

My favorite flower has always been the Rose ever since I planted my first rosebush, the "Peace Rose", when I was very young.  Ever since then, I always await the bloom of my "First Rose of Spring".  This year's Rose is called "Nicole".  As you can see it is pale pink in color with a darker pink edging, and very fragrant.

Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.
