Here is an example of how late we are (or how early last year was). This is a photo that I published on 4/19/12 ... if I remember correctly, the photo was taken the day before.
This is the same toad house, in the exact same spot ... photo, from a slightly different angle, taken yesterday afternoon.
The rose is 'Reve d'Or'. It has only been fully leafed out for a few weeks. Its buds are small and fat, and I imagine we are two weeks from seeing its first flower. The roses in the rest of the garden are in a similar state ... full of buds, and I am looking forward to what should be a pretty great rose season.
