I've been waiting on this little Rose to bloom for what seems like weeks but then we would get an overnight freeze or one of this year's freaky snowfalls and the bud quite naturally refused to open.
Yesterday, I thought it would surely open but it wasn't ready. Then this morning when I checked...it had started to open to the world and I am thrilled!
I'm so proud of this little beauty! It has a few scars from freezing weather but it persevered and demonstrates once again...tenacity has it's upside!
