Summer is in full bloom, and so is this impressive little tea cup size rose at the back of a Barriere garden.
“This was a little potted rose given to me by a friend for my birthday last spring”, said Elli Kohnert, “It was blooming then, but it eventually stopped doing well in the house. It started to do so poorly I had given up on it. I almost threw it out, but then I took pity on it, so I took it outside and planted it in a spot at the back of my garden.”
That was well over a month ago says Kohnert, but she kept an eye on the plant, and says “eventually it started to look a little better every day, so much so that it has now bloomed once again”. Kohnert says she has no idea if this will be “the last rose of summer” for her little plant, but she is already making plans to bring it inside for the winter so it will be ready to produce beautiful blooms in her garden again next spring.
