Tis the last rose of Summer...
|The Little Rose that Could|
Truth be told,
it is the last rose of Autumn
the last rose of 2011
and the very last blooming flower within my gardens
until next Spring
when the sun again will warm the earth below.
Tucked up close to a window reflecting the sun,
I couldn't help but smile
as I contemplated it's desire to bloom...
no matter what.
Neither swirling snowflakes nor morning temps in the 20's
could dissuade this little rose
from fulfilling the measure of it's creation ...
Hmm... there must be something
I should learn from this rose.
Grateful today for life lessons learned in my gardens.
