China Tea

I haven't had time to sew, so I thought I'd show off a rose from my garden. When we bought the house, we thought it would be a really good idea to have a rose garden. 40 roses and 2 kids later, I don't have time to take care of the roses the way they deserve.

This particular rose is a China Tea. It smells heavenly and isn't particularly bothered by pests or diseases. The buds ball when they get wet.

Fall isn't the best time for roses, but this one continues to bloom well into December. Sure it's sporadic, but a single beautiful rose stands out more when there isn't much competition.
