This is my heirloom rose. That I totally neglect. But at least once a year it gives me a dazzling display.
And it's happening right now. I selected it sight unseen from a catalog, but when they said it had a wonderful fragrance, I was sold. White flowers are usually my favorite fragrance in cologne, so I thought, why not?
Along with the divine fragrance and the lovely flowers, there are thorns. Not your average hybrid-tea rose thorns, but some mack-daddy thorns. Prehistoric, even.
