Through the month of January I sort of collected some of the local roses that continued to bloom in spite of some actual wintery night temperatures, sketching them on the last 2-page spread of this journal. Our first winter in the area roses all went dormant but this year has been mostly mild with occasional rainfall. Our rose shrubs that died did so more from too much rain.
I usually use the very last end paper pages for random information, quotes, testing colors and inks, and a few random sketches. Rarely is there visible space left --- blame it on my being too busy packing for a road trip. I'm taking a new journal and didn't wish to carry both with me.
