The Life of a Rose Bloom

Tonight is a tired out Thursday, so a quick post so I can go to sleep.

The post will be mostly pictures as I share a series of pictures that show the life of a rose bloom. My new Mister Lincoln rose bush is the model for the pictures.

With the exception of the first picture these are all of the same rose bloom. My new Mister Lincoln rose blooms do not last very long. They bloom quickly and fade even quicker.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the life of a rose bloom.
