I have always loved this bit of old-fashioned beauty.  A time when women savored the last roses of the season perhaps.  Nowadays....I can't really get any of my roses to bloom much at all.  I guess I am an African Violet person.  They bloom profusely all  year long for me.  Just to remind myself of that makes me feel contented.

'Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest.....Home-keeping hearts are happiest.....Henry W. Longfellow.

It is odd that I can not get roses to cooperate for me either!

I do enjoy my African Violet, especially so in the Winter. I need those pretty blooms.

Such a lovely print! Sorry you have issues growing roses. Growing anything here in the desert is such a struggle...even the indoor plants!
