Day 60: Identity Crisis

So, this is the story of the super fresh spring roses in my front yard. I'm just amazed at how much a rose can change from being a bud to being a full grown. Talk about identity crisis!

Here's how it looks when it starts out - really pink and ready to take on the world. 

And this this is how it opens up each one of its petals, the bold ones are out and about, the shy ones still opening up and a few all the way inside still enjoying the infant stage.

And in the next couple of days, this is like all gone wild. Every petal bloomed fully forming a super size rose! And what ever happened to the dark pink color? Where did all of that go?

All said and done, a rose is a rose is a rose. No matter what stage, it just makes my front yard look beautiful!!  I wish Spring can stay forever.
