The First of May, The First Rose

The rose bud shown in my previous entry has opened into a stunning, intensely fragrant flower.  Double Delight did not disappoint!  A surprise is that shortly after this opened, Gertrude Jekyll opened a blossom about ten feet up in the air above the back yard arbor.  I had to shoot it from a second floor window using a telephoto lens!  It's great to have roses again!  🙂  Here's the very first Double Delight.
