Today's blooms

As I was taking a photo of my just bloomed iris I happened to see this sleeping insect – he finally woke and flew off covered in pollen.

This is from a rose bush over 200 years old; my Great Grandmother had it in her yard and gave my Grandmother a cutting, I took a cutting from my Grandmother and in two years it is enormous with these lovely delicate roses about inch in size with a subtle sweet smell.
