A red rose blossoms in a flower bed that holds only dead plants from the previous year. It proves life will find a way because this rose happens to be wild.
I noticed it fighting to break the soil last summer and thought it would not survive the winter. It just had to prove me wrong. Our roses are in another flower bed and not a red one in the bunch. Still trying to figure out where the red one came from.
This is one of the buds on one of our rosebushes that are by our front door. My sister-in-law is a crazy rose woman, and loves collecting different ones. So far there are five different roses in her garden.
