Rose of the Week: Dolly Parton
I've decided to start a series featuring one rose from our yard each week. This is the first in the series.
Dolly Parton is an east Tennessee icon. Her Dollywood amusement park caused tourist to spend even more time (and money) in our part of the state, and her Imagination LIbrary, which mails age-appropriate books to the homes of preschoolers, has helped raise literacy levels in our schools.
Dolly Parton also has a rose, which we have enjoyed for several years, named after her. I wonder if the fact that this is a 'plump' rose had anything to do with the naming of it?
