Christmas roses

We lost three of our rose shrubs this past year due to extreme flooding followed by extreme drought. Those that survived did so by going dormant (deer whose feeding grounds were under water ate the leaves). But a couple of the hardiest shrubs made an early comeback --- these blooms greeted us on Christmas morning!


  1. Our rose bushes have bloomed more beautifully this Christmas than ever before! Your sketches are lovely!

  2. Somehow roses seem more magical in winter!
