Last Rose of Summer


Each year, Dorothy's rose down in the big garden produces an abundance of hot pink blooms. Its first flush of blooms, always the biggest of the year, is in June. But then it has a few more, smaller flushes, as Summer marches along. It is always interested to see when the last bloom of the year will appear. Unless another bud  miraculously forms, this is the last bloom of 2014.
