I am desperate for spring, and saw a few signs this morning when I went to take Princess Muddy Paws out for her walk. The crocus are up and blooming, my neighbor's tulips are starting to come up, and my beautiful gravity defying Prince William rose is shooting sprouts and new growth! This year I am going to measure it, to see how tall it grows. The last few years it has stretched up over the light fixture at the front door, and up to the second story window casings. It really is a remarkable plant. Smells wonderful too.
