Canary Bird

Today I returned to the Pauatahanui Burial Ground to see what was happening there in early spring.

Some very early roses were beginning to bloom with buds galore on all the roses.

This pretty yellow rose caught my eye.

Canary Bird (Pimpinellifoliae) is its name, dating back to 1908 but this bush was planted in 1996.

A good frisky spring breeze was ruffling things and making photo taking a little tricky.

I will be returning to the Ground in the next few weeks to record more of the first roses.
