I know what you are thinking... She's showing us another flower shot... I can't help it, I love flowers. However, these roses have a special story. They survived Hurricane Irene. You can see that the fully bloomed rose is a bit battered but the new budding rose did well. This rose bush is right in the middle of our front yard and it was being blown back and forth for hours!
