The Last Rose

The Last Rose of Summer

In 2013 my husband planted a rosebush that he knew I’d like. Yellow is my favorite color and these beautiful yellow roses are a reminder of his love. With each one that has bloomed over the past month, I’ve wondered if it’s the last for the season, but they just keep blooming. 

I wanted to share this one with you, just in case it is the last rose of summer.
