Unfurling roses covered in dew.

While I love plants and gardening, it does typically take more time than what I’ve been able to devote to it, so I am grateful when a plant is gorgeous without too much help.  When we moved to this house, the rose bush was in place and I’ve done nothing more than clip a few long leaders and remove any faded blooms.  Since there is a sprinkler head adjacent to the plant, no watering is required.  About every three months, the bush covers itself with similar blossoms.  Interestingly, the color seems to shift.  This set of blooms was very bright.  Since then, it has made lighter colors, so we’ll keep track and see what it does next.
