A rose is a rose is a rose...

My calendar says today is November 17th. This year we can mark it as the day the roses bloomed.

In at least three Plainfield yards you could see them in pink, gold, yellow...

The roses of spring arrived in a range of colors and every form from buds to full blossoms.

They must have been coaxed out by the many days of Indian Summer we've been having, capped off by Wednesday's balmy 72 degree temperature. Tonight's forecast is a chilly 32 degrees. Quick. Get out the bud vase.
