A Single Rose



Memory has the power to gather roses in winter.

I’m not sure who wrote this saying but it is one of my favorites.

I discovered this single rose by surprise last week. I was in a hurry on my way somewhere when it made me stop and take a deep breath.

I took a photo of it as a reminder to stop and notice the beauty around me each day. Β I want to remember this rose in the middle of winter.

What flowers do you like to gather in your memories?

I’d love to hear from you!

Stay Warm!  😊

  3. Oh how lovely! Different flowers bring back so many different memories, but I think my all-time favorite has got to be the bleeding heart, and I have an heirloom plant my grandmother gave me that I have planted at two different homes already. It reminds me of her special love. πŸ™‚ Heat back yet?

  5. Hi Jill, I do hope you are back to a warm home. Both my grandmother and mother loved the Peace Rose. Their gardens were always full of roses. I used to pick off the thorns, as a kid, and stick them on my nose. Heehee.

  6. What a lovely surprise! I don’t know what flowers I like to gather in my memories…I think I’ve always had a greater affinity for food and so I tend to gather food in my memories. LOL!

  11. The last roses are always the most beautiful. Maybe because we are getting ready to lose all the colors. Lovely saying and beautiful photo.
