>First Bloom – 2010 – Mutabilis

>I was so glad to finally see the first rose bloom of the season in my garden. Up at my usual 5:30 a.m., for coffee, the Birmingham News, a review of google reader (my garden blog resource), and my morning garden walk. There she was, shining so pretty for all the world to see! Mutabilis…. As you might recall, I just planted Mutabilis at the end of February and did not expect to see any blooms anytime soon. I have many other roses in bud, but none close to opening anytime soon.

Today is our neighborhood association Spring Clean Up Day, that means I get to power wash the driveway and sidewalks, haul items to the dumpsters that have accumulated in our garage and hopefully this afternoon, read my very first subscription copy of the American Rose magazine that came in the mail yesterday!
