I am happy to say that the miniature yellow rose I bought yesterday is settling in nicely and should have a flower in a day or two. The unfurling bud has a very light, sweet tea rose scent, unusual for these minis. I will post a picture of the rose when it opens.

Two photos of the current late-summer roses:
