A NEW YEAR’S ROSE

This morning I discovered a rose blooming – in the garage.  We had moved our potted rose bushes into the garage to protect them from the unseasonably cold weather.  This is definitely the last rose of  2010.    Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve.

You love the roses – so do  I.   I wish

The sky would rain down roses, as they rain

From off the shaken bush.  Why will it not?

Then all the valley would be pink and white

And soft to tread on.  They would fall as light

As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be

Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

(Roses by George Eliot)

My very best  wishes for a positive New Year.
