December Rose


I don't think it's a record, but we had snow here in eastern NC for the first time in December for as long as I can remember. It began Saturday afternoon and didn't stop until well into Saturday night. I am not a fan of snow but it did set the stage for getting into the Christmas spirit. We decorated our Christmas tree early yesterday morning and seeing the snow covered ground while we worked certainly made for a nice Norman Rockwell Sunday morning. I went outside with the dogs pretty early and took a few pictures, my favorite being a pink rose in full bloom. The rosebush belonged to my mom, so it's special. The rose blooming in December was special, the rose and greenery surrounded by snow made it magical.

Oh Pat that is so pretty. I wish I knew the trick of propagating from a cutting - my mother used to do it all the time but me?? not so much with roses. (although I did my azalea and the forsythia dn some butterfly bushes..)

That is beautiful THANKS!

Pat,
It's so great that you thought to get a photo before this magic moved on. Thanks for sharing it.
