My roses are in bloom. The photo above is the result of one of those lucky things that happen when the light is just right, I am in place with my camera at the perfectly precise moment in time, and the planets are properly aligned .
I confess, I am not so very knowledgeable when it comes to caring for these amazing plants, but despite my ignorance, they continue to bloom spectacularly. Each day, when a new bud opens into a beautiful rose, I pronounce it to be my favorite, until the next one blooms. It's as if I get a stunningly perfect gift with each new bud.
Thank you, Mother Nature. You know how to make this girl happy!
