Marjorie loves flowers and tending to her yard. The rose growing in her backyard for years has been manically productive, putting out canes that climb as high as the house. The plant blooms early and multiple times from spring through summer and into the autumn. With both desire and ability to bend her reality just a bit, she likes to say the bush was given to her by her son, because she bought it when at the nursery with him and his wife, also an avid gardener. Marjorie notes that she “dead heads” the blooms shortly after they dry up. Then more blooms come. Typically, the rose has two major blooms per year. In addition to pink, there are here and there red blossoms on some of the canes.
