A Rose is a Rose...not so!

Let me just say, time did not stand still today.

What happened to Thursday?

While I was running around today I stopped at New Seasons Market .

A few weeks back I had found a rose that was unbelievable!

I should have bought it at the time but instead I took a picture of it with my phone.

I kicked myself later, as my picture didn't turn out as nicely as I would have liked.

I went back to the store a few days later only to find the roses were not looking as chipper as they did when I first saw them.

Fortunately, when I went by New Seasons today, they had the same rose looking a little perkier.

So I bought it.

I say "it" because at $4.00 a rose I can't buy too many.

Isn't it the most amazing rose?

I'm sorry I can't tell you the name of it.

The first time I asked the clerk she said it was a Juliette Rose.

But when I went back the gal said that it wasn't a Juliette and she wasn't sure what it was called.

Sorry, to all of you that wanted to run out and buy this rose bush...I was the same way.

If anyone out there knows what it is I'd love to hear from you.
