Rose of the Week: Milestone

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

Milestone is one of the newer roses in our garden.  We first saw it in the gardens of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.  We liked it so much that we got a bush of our own, and have enjoyed its beautiful blossoms ever since.
