Yes, Virginia there is . . .

a rose blooming in upstate, New York

in November!

November Rose

This plant finally had a reprieve

from the rains and beetles of the summer...


~ And surprised me with one more bloom ~

So that I will remember its sweetness throughout the winter . . .


An invitation from God to stop and be still.

I am afraid there will be no reprieve here in West Michigan, as we have had several hard frosts. But....my rosemary plant is still thriving, so I might try to bring her in today. And the holly bush has berries, so there is a bit of color!
Have a blessed weekend, Maria, and enjoy your rose gift!

Maria-what a beautiful rose and photo. I love the title of the post, clever. Sometimes natures offers us that bonus...isn't it wonderful?

Sometimes the last bloom is the sweetest and stays in memory the longest. Your beautiful rose looks like velvet,Maria.

It is exquisite Maria. I think I can smell its sweet perfume right through my computer screen.
That one was worth waiting for!

Love you moon post too. It really was amazing!

Hello, Maria,
I think the roses love this cooler autumn weather, don't you? Such a beautiful piece of God's handiwork. Thank you for sharing it with us. Also, thank you for remembering my community in prayer. Blessings, sweet friend! Vicki
