Roses take forever to bloom.
I’ve been watching these buds for almost two weeks. It’s almost time because the rose sepals (the leaves the protect the flower inside) finally start cracking open.
These will be the first climbing roses on the trellis.
I can hardly wait. It’s interesting to note that you learn things in the waiting (like what sepals are). I like to remember to ask, “What am I supposed to learn in this waiting time?”
There’s always something.
