The Rose

One benefit of the cool, wet Spring and early Summer has been the continued blooming of this rose. Normally it starts with a huge flush of bloom in June and then throws off a few blooms here and there for another six weeks or so. This year it never had one single large flush, but instead has been carrying 10-12 blooms consistently. It is now the second week of August and it still looks lovely. Last year, with all of the heat, it was long done blooming by this point in time.
