A Pleasant Surprise



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

We arrived home Sunday afternoon to discover that the Glade is under a Freeze Warning for Sunday night - Monday morning. We heard that news while driving home. When we pulled into the driveway we noticed the rose in the picture above. One of the nurseries we buy from had a rose sale in late August and we purchased Touch of Class because the price was irresistible.

This bud is the first on this rose. I wonder if it will be there when the sun comes up this morning.

Very pretty rose. I have seen roses stay around until the first snow.

I hope it survives! I'd love to see it in full bloom. I love the unusual color — it's like a mix of red, fuchsia and vermilion.

I hope it is still there as it is simply beautiful. Mine are doing better since it turned cooler and rained. In fact, I have one that has never bloomed till now. I excited about it and will share with you later.
