I was really surprised to see the rose bush in my backyard flowering. I was under the impression that it was dead and gone, but the maple tree falling down during the winter storm must’ve done something good for the plant. Either it stopped sucking up all the nutrients and / or the rotting roots are providing good fertilizer. I had to spend quite a bit of time getting used to the close-up lens (Canon 500D) which I affixed in front of the daddy and the extension tube. An hour later I had 365 photos of roses, daisies and dandelions to parse and process. Did that this morning.
