Last Rose

Two roses and several buds cut before the heavy frost and rain yesterday. Also brought the rest of the plants in from screen porch.
Here it is November 16. Wonder what our winter will be like. It is cold today but the sun is shining. As long as the sun is shining it warms my heart and my spirit.

The early mist had vanished and the fields lay like a silver shield under the sun. It was one of those days when the glitter of winter shines through a pale haze of spring.
Edith Wharton

Just some sharing this morning from One Woman

I also took a photo of my last two roses that I had cut and brought inside and also the last of my poor hydrangeas. I will have to post. they do not look as healthy or nice as yours. Winter is on the way!

Ernestine, Your roses are such a cheering color. The lack of color is the saddest thing about winter for me, but I've been trying to learn to love it for its own beauties.

How pretty those flowers look on your table!
