Here's the first post for the Aus dem Garten category. It's only February, and sill winter here, but the roses are are already sprouting leaves!

In spite of recent rain, making the ground sloppy and heavy, I planted some new nursery stock:  The JFK Hybrid Tea Rose.

So far it's the only white rose I have in the dozen+ that grow in the garden.  As they start producing, I'll post a gallery for 2012's rose blooms.
