New Life Emerging Among Thorns

This is taken from  Thomas Haynes Photoshoot,  my photography business blog---a photo of spring and perhaps for Easter, depending on how deeply symbolic go the thorns.

A new colorful branch burst forth in thorny Welsh rose bush
This partial view is of an old rose bush, handed down in the family by cuttings to preserve its heritage. The bush likely came to this country about 200 years ago.
It is  an aggressive grower and is contained by turning back new canes to form a sort of birds nest, a perfect summer bramble for Peter Rabbit™!
