When our Lives become difficult
and ripe with strife
a Haven comprised of
Compassion and Love
is one of the Greatest Gifts
we can receive.
Uncropped, hand held image of “Rio Samba” who flowered for the first time August of this year. Her cane had been thrust upwards during this extremely harsh winter we had last year, and in so doing, was exposed to the deadly winds and freezing cold. If anyone knows anything about Roses, a Rose cane must be covered to protect it from the winter’s cold in order for that Rose bush to survive.
I refused to give up on Her, rearranging the dirt and mulch around Her cane as soon as I could after the ground thawed in the way that She likes. I Loved upon Her as well as nurtured Her with fertilizers, natural pesticides, water, and Liquid Fence to prevent deer from eating Her. I was stunned She survived. She has only one other bud on Her right now, and you better believe it, I will be there with my camera to capture it.
*I know not if I will be able to reply to comments. I am still recovering from the Super Human Effort I gave to bring health to two critically ill cats. Please just enjoy this post. I know how many of you just Love my flowers, especially my Roses. And so today, for YOU, I created this post for your viewing pleasure.*
