I bought a rose bush at the farmer's market on a whim. I might be a little out of my league here, there seem to all sorts of chores required to keep a rose bush happy; mulching, planting allium nearby, feeding it fish meal.

The bush came with four buds ready to bloom. The cats broke on of the buds off before I could plant it (the fiends). I did not realize the blooms would be so pink. The buds were much darker.

 Still they are pretty and the only bit of color in the garden at the moment.

I am really taken with how they fade.

I didn't know it was rose season, it seems so hot for the poor guys. They look edible! So pretty!
