Early Season Rose Blooms

The weather is lovely but I was staffing a MKP weekend this past weekend so didn’t get into the garden.  I have pictures of the Apothecary rose on my camera but the camera is hiding somewhere in the house so I will need to post those later.   Here are pictures of more stuff in bloom right now that I took with the camera on my tablet:

Great Maidens Blush (Alba pre-1600)

There are also a bunch of rose buds on the R. Alba semiplena and the Rosa Mundi in pots.   I took another look at the Lady Banks and it has a lot of foliage but any blooms that it might have had are long gone.  I am thinking that the cold we had in late spring either kept it from setting buds or killed those beginning buds.
