The last roses of Summer

Tonight I was down in the big garden and noticed that the last two buds on Dorthy's rose had opened in the last few days. While this rose didn't get started blooming until the very last week of June, it has bloomed continuously ever since. It might be an older rose, and very susceptible to black spot, but 10 weeks of bloom is hard to beat.

Beautiful! It seems to me that my roses are happier now than they have been all summer. I just walked by them yesterday and the fragrance was enveloping!

Anyhoo, Dorothy is just lovely:)
