Roses in Winter?
No, it's not winter just yet. But roses on Thanksgiving? Rare enough to catch my attention along with my fucsia which is still blooming robustly. So after I photographed this Perfect Moment rose, I clipped it off and brought it inside to grace my Thanksgiving dinner table. I added some matching sprigs from my Japanese maple. Those petals and leaves will all be gone in a matter of days, especially with the winds we are having. The sentiment from the classic SU! set, Roses in Winter, came to mind: "Memory is the power to gather roses in winter". Farewell my lovelies!
