No Good in Bed

My yellow rose is still blooming till now.  I keep cutting it and  putting it in my flower vase inside.
I find this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt  very funny.
"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall. "

I have one bush that bloomed again this week. It is pretty, bright pink. In Texas the flowers do not know what season it is. Your yellow rose is lovely.
