December Rose

I looked up at the garden this morning and something pink caught my eye.  Pink is not a garden color for December.  The fact that it was near the rose bush made me wonder if it could, at all, be a rose.  So I moseyed up there with the camera and found not one, but two roses.  One was up high and partially opened and unfortunately the picture came out all fuzzy.  Lower, I found this.....

The rose itself appears to have a fuzzy texture, but I could smell it's fragrance.  So I picked both of them and brought them into the house.  I will let you know if this one does, in fact, bloom. 

If I hadn't been home, I'm sure I would have missed this treat. 


  1. Oh my gosh how can that be... It is lovely.. If I had my choice my entire yard would be a rose garden.. They don't grow too well in the south.. Beautiful picture. Gave me warm "fuzzies"
