I wrote a post about Carefree Beauty (here) in which I commented that this rose was one of my favorites, although I noted that there was one thing that kept this rose from being truly wonderful - repeat bloom. She didn't have one.
Well, there was some repeat in the fall. But no blooms in the summer. Nada. Nothing. Zip.
But, this year Carefree Beauty has made me a liar! She has bloomed all summer long. All summer long!
Bloom after big, beautiful bloom.
All summer long.
What has changed? Why is she blooming all summer now? Maybe because I've moved her to where she gets more sun. Maybe because she's finally settling into her new home.
Maybe she just wanted to make a liar out of me!
