Clobbered but coming back

About a year and a half ago we had a dead tree removed, and when it fell it clobbered one of our rose bushes. (If you’re not familiar with the word clobbered, it means the rose bush was hit hard and severely battered.) Last year there were no blooms, and we were worried that the rose bush was damaged beyond recovery.

But this year, we have beautiful pink roses…

Pink rose 1-1

Pink rose 2-1

“The roses under my window make no reference to former roses or better ones; they are what they are; they exist with God today. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.”

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
