  1. It was 34 this morning when I got up. It’s been in the 30’s every morning here for the past week. It hasn’t gotten over 50 during the day. I have a gorgeous pink rose blooming. Just one. I feel almost sorry for it all alone in the cold, but it reminds me of A Rose In Winter:
    A Rose in Winter
    A crimson bloom in winter’s snow,
    Born out of time, like a maiden’s woe,
    Spawned in a season when the chill winds blow.
    ’Twas found in a sheltered spot,
    Bright sterling gules and blemished not,
    Red as a drop o’ blood from the broken heart,
    Of the maid who waits and weeps atop the tor,
    Left behind by yon argent knight sworn to war,
    ’Til ajousting and aquesting he goes no more.
    Fear not, Sweet Jo, amoulderin’ on the moor.
    The winter’s rose doth promise in the fading runes of yore,
    That true love once found will again be restored.”
    ― Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, A Rose in Winter

    • Our roses have all been cut back – just the morning glory blooming. I loved that book! And all of her early books. I think she lost some of her story-telling in the later ones. Now…. Where is that…..

I love getting your comments; I read them all. I also answer them all - eventually.....
