Only the Mama!


On New Year's Eve Day I noticed this rose bud. The odd thing about it is that its branch is among several rose branches sitting in a bucket of water that the Mama set aside in early October. She pruned the branches from the rose bushes in the front yard and was going to plant the branches in the backyard. But, then her health sidetracked her.

This is the first time I've ever seen a rose branch in water take blossom. Another surprising thing is that we've had cold temperatures, including frosty mornings, for several weeks. I can only think that the Mama's love for her roses is strong and the roses love her back.

By the way, the Mama is doing better. If you're interested in what happened, you can read about the Mama's health in last Sunday's post.

  1. I am so glad she is feeling better. Your mom has the greenest thumb I have ever heard of. The first rose of the year

    1. Thanks, Birgit. The backyard is a muddy mess. If it's another clear day tomorrow, I'll check on the rose and see whether it survived the storm. I wouldn't be surprised if it did.

  2. I think the rose was watching over your Mama and willing her to get well so she can get back into her beloved garden!

    1. I love that thought, Jenny. With all the rain and chilly temps keeping me out of the garden, it's going to be a whole new game in Spring. Maybe this year we can shorten the veggie boxes and widen the paths without her noticing.

    1. She received her last shot yesterday. Let's hope her test result reflect as positively as the way she's feels.

    1. It sure is. At first I thought it was a long branch from a nearby bush gone crazy. Nope.
