Rescued rose bush

photographic subject of page

The day before a two-week trip, I got an email about some dug-up rose bushes destined for trash pickup. I rescued three from the sidewalk a few blocks away but gave one to the school crossing guard on the corner. I unceremoniously stuck the remaining two in the ground before resuming my packing. Both bushes flowered all summer long, even into mid November. May 2013
