Photo day 8: Win'er, w'a' win'er?*

in proper English,

Winter, what winter?

Hoe zo, Winter?

Today it was 9 degrees Celcius  here, 
and this rose is clearly under the delusion that it's April at least.
You can see that the bush has new growth, about 2 to 3 inches long.
In the same shrubbery there were a couple of roses in full bloom
 with new shoots 6 or 7 inches long and with fully formed new leaves.
Unfortunately, too far away to get a good photo.

Vandaag was het hier 9 graden.
Deze roos meent dat het al April is, of later. In  hetzelfde plantsoen, 
staat  er één met twee bloemen in volle bloei.
Ook met nieuwe takken van 12 à 15 cm.
Helaas, te ver weg voor een foto.
