The one pretty blossom rose bush

Five years ago we planted a rose bush. I could hardly wait for it to bloom. It had one beautiful blossom on the top and one pitiful blossom below. Those were the only blossoms for the first year. The second year it had one beautiful blossom on the top and two pitiful blossoms below. The third year..... you've got the idea now. Last fall we cut the bush all the way down to the ground. Before we could replace it the bush was back as big as ever. This was the fifth year and sure enough we got one beautiful blossom and five pitiful ones. This photo is of the one good blossom. If you have any idea about why this happens please tell me. Perhaps the rose bush hates me! Perhaps the rose bush is trying to drive me crazy!
