Many months
                 Raggedy bush
                                             Little blooming
                                                                                     Yucky blooms
                                                                                                                  Then today
                                                                                                                                           One perfect rose


  1. It is a beautiful bloom. Looks so lonely sitting there all by itself. Hopefully it does better next year without all the nasty weather we had this year.

  2. Wow, that's a perfect bloom !!! And a perfect photo too !!!

  3. I love the "General"!!!!! Today 9 came out of the mist house to the transition area. As I was writing the name nine times - I kept thinking of your email and the French woman pronouncing his name. Made me smile!!!! Thanks!

  4. haha - Isn't that the most frustrating thing? Roses like that I always swear I'm getting rid of. Then, those perfect blooms! Ah, what to do. Maybe next year will be his year!
