The Last Rose

I don't understand all the fuss about "the last rose of summer." Because of the heat and periods of drought, this year the last rose of summer for this 'Carefree Beauty' was in June. No, for me, it's the last rose of autumn, the very last rose of the gardening season that is the one, and here it is. Tonight's forecast calls for a freeze, a 28F/-2C killer. This act may be ending, but the show goes on.
