This rose bush, which is full of dead canes and grows within my grasp in front of my balcony, somehow continues to put forth a profusion of blooms every summer. They are, sadly, very short-lived, are a soft petal pink, and most blooms have five petals, approximately 1.5″ across. They have a very showy yellow center and are a magnet for bees. It was planted on this property about 30 years ago. Anyone care to guess as to what kind it is? I have no clue as to its identification or origins, but I surely do enjoy its showy visit every year.
it would not have been the miracle that it is.” – J B Yeats
