I know! I know! A third, a third, and a third. Rules were made to be broken! This miniature rose was on sale for less than $2.50 this summer. A true steal. It has bloomed magnificently. Now, November 2, it still amazes. We've had frost. We've had big winds. And yet, you see it today! A true testament to tenacity and heartiness. It must be a South Dakota native! Of course, to be truthful, it never did get planted outside! It graces our western oriel (oh god, how I've wanted to use that crossword answer just once in a sentence!) and blesses us with its grace! Hopefully, it's NOT the last bloom!
