Finally, the new rose blooms

Happy first bloom of the season.

My dear wife Karen’s patience with the rose bush she received for Mother’s Day from daughter Elisabeth and fiance George Three paid off.

The initial bloom of its first year in our backyard appeared at the end of October.

And it’s a gorgeous violent, standing out adjacent to the veteran white roses also still kicking out to its right.

  1. The rose is so beautiful. Imagine it blooming in late October! We’ve already had frost down here. Kudos to Karen! Roses are hard to bloom in this area and I would have thought impossible in Syracuse! You guys are supposed to be colder than we are.
