I promised you a picture of our favorite tea rose, which grows next to the sidewalk in front. Can’t believe I got a picture of this bloom before the beetles and/or earwigs got to it. Soon after we bought this house, we gutted the front yard, taking out the old lawn and everything else, leaving ONLY this one rosebush. We have no idea what variety it is. I wanted to remove it this year, because it looked so dreadful last summer. But my dear husband vetoed that idea, and so far so good, this year. Probably it just wants more water. I will try to be a better caretaker.
