Princess Rose

I wanted to post another picture of a flower, because yesterday's Camellia was so pretty. It also makes me think of Spring. I keep looking out the windows towards the little sprouts under the trees and hope they will survive the snow and ice.

I asked Dancer Girl what kind of flower I should post, and in classic form she says, "A Princess Rose." So, here you go, Dancer Girl, here's your Princess Rose. That is actually its name.

Thank you Dancer Girl for picking such a beautiful flower, for your mom to post.

Kitten Yarn...I also find myself looking at flowers anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring.

While I was taking the pictures for my Winter Wonderland post I noticed that there were new buds on my plum tree and I hope that this recent weather has not hurt then. Last year the tree was over-loaded with fruit and we were all so happy...but then because of draught...the fruit all fell off before maturity. We were very disappointed.

The Lillies popped-up for a peek at the world and were quickly covered by snow...but I know they will survive and bloom magestically, later on.

A beautiful red rose, that Sharon gave us, had already begun to leave- out, with small new green leaves, when the snow hit. I'm hoping that it will be ok, because it is one of our last surviving roses and it means a lot to me...because it was a gift from Sharon.

Spring is ready to burst out if given half the chance by the weather.

It's amazing how many different roses there are, so that you can almost just think of a name, and there's a rose by that name!

My lovely mother once bought me a rose that was the same name as me. (My real name, that is - it was not a Jellyhead Rose!!)

A rose by any other name would not smell so sweet, someone once wrote. Please give Dancer Girl and Little Sister a big Valentine kiss and hug from their grandma and grandpa. We love you all.
