For Cee’s Flower of the Day.
This rose is on Irondale Beach. It is standing wild, but the blossoms are 5 inches across and it is such a vivid color. I do not know if it is wild or not.
I have read the Louisa May Alcott book, Rose in Bloom. I loved the clearly stated ethics in those books when I was little. As if there were rules and they could be learned and followed, even though I knew that the real world was much more confusing and people were much more mysterious.
