The Cinco de Mayo Rose in Second Bloom

Does the cool weather have an effect on roses? I'm just wondering because here is a picture of the Cinco de Mayo rose in August:






And here is the rose just yesterday:




Quite a difference and yet the exact same rose bush. Can anyone tell me if this is normal for roses during the second bloom?

I do not know much about roses, but I love the way this rose seem to have adapted with the cooler weather, being beautiful in both warm and cold temperatures. Thank you

Anyes: If I had taken a moment to Google I would have found that October's bloom is how the rose should look and August's bloom was the anomaly. Strange that I got two entirely different looking blooms from the same bush.

Awesome gifts of nature, both roses being very different and beautiful in their own way. Thank you for looking it up, Karen
