a sunny day, oh my!

We had sun today and it didn't get too hot.  I went to a doctor appointment and saw what I think was a male Marsh Hawk.  Bird identification by car is not an exact science.

I went out to the back yard when I got home and took some pictures.  Some of my roses took a massive hit from the winter but most are coming back from the roots if from nowhere else.  This is one of the reasons I never buy grafted roses and only ones on their own rootstock.

A very rugged rugosa rose -- Roseraie de L"Hay.

Another on that seemingly took no hit from the winter.  This is a Rosa Rubifolia or Glauca. I love the leaf color  and the very simple blooms.
