Sweet Little Rose...

"What's in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." - Juliet
~ Shakespeare

Such a brave little rose!
This is the first rose bloom I have seen this year.

I took a photo before Morgan, the deer, or the chickens could have it for a snack.

The flower is very pink, but my camera doesn't capture color very well.

We only have a few little wild rose plants that manage to survive from year to year. They are pretty well eaten away to not much every year, but the leaves struggle back and there are a few blooms.

It is usually very dry here, but this year with all the rain and snow they are looking green and healthy. If they were growing by a stream instead of in the forest they would look more like the bushes in the video.

I was very glad to find that these little roses were growing on the property when we moved up here. It was good to find a familiar "face" among all the new.

I can't imagine living in a place that is so dry and I have traveled through places like New Mexico, Arizona etc. and they all have their beauty but I do love the greenery we get. The pink is one of my favorite flowers. Glad to see they are thriving!

I think it's a nice picture. Glad you found it before the critters did! :)
