Not all that blooms is beautiful.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't praise the effort!

Here's my floribunda rose "Moondance"'s first flower. The poor thing's brown around the edges, but it smells awfully good. I never heard of a rose that smells like raspberries!

I pinched the first bud, and I don't see any more coming after this. I'll try to treat this plant nicely for the rest of the summer. Hopefully it will look better next year. I only planted it this May...

I'm not sure what causes the edges of the flower petals to brown like that. I'm hoping it's the weather and not more bugs.
