My Antidote to the Snowpocalypse Blues

So I never managed to get the roses from *this post* into the ground last fall. Which had me frantically tugging them inside one November night because we were supposed to have our first hard frost. I have to say that I doubted they'd survive the winter inside....but they're actually thriving.

They're actually....blooming!
Today I clipped a blossom and placed it in a lovely aqua blue vintage bottle I found a couple years ago at a yard sale. Just seeing it, and burying my nose in it, relieves the winter blahs.
I ended up putting this beauty front and center on the dining room table, so it's staring at us every time we pass through...reminding us that spring is just around the corner and summer will be here before we know it. Thank God.


  1. That is GORGEOUS! Nice work.

  2. Do you realize how many people can't get a rose to bloom OUTSIDE during the season???This is gorgeous!!! (Where'd ja git yer green thumm?)
