I've always called these plants cabbage roses simply because of the way they look, but I know there's an official name. Whatever, I just love them - this one I found at Mill Creek Park. Next year I'm hoping to plant a few in our own yard! Thursday's here, and it's another rainy day. Have a good one, everyone!
