Sheila - what a gorgeous rose! I do so love flowers. The beauty of this rose made me think about a gift I received. I have never had an amaryllis before, but friends gave me one this past holiday season. The flowers were a deep, velvety, burgundy red - similar to your rose and just beautiful. About the time the main blooms were dying back, I noticed a new bud rising from the plant base. I thought it would be just one more flower, but to my amazement and joy, when the bud opened there were actually four blossoms inside. Altogether, I have been able to enjoy these beautiful blooms for a solid month! Thank you for the beauty you share and contribute to my world.

Thank you, Lauren. And thanks for the reminder of the Amaryllis. Several years ago, for a couple of winter holiday seasons, I would buy Amaryllis. This was long before we moved to "tropical flower land" (though this rose was not local). I loved the them. Now to find a source for the flower year-round, if that's possible.

Dear Sheila,
This rose really touches me. For months I have been doing a rose-meditation as explained in a beautifull book by Sharon McErlane on restoring the yin-yang balance on earth . I recognize myself in your rose: it has one little bruised spot on an outer petal yet it is blooming as the flower it was intended to be!
Love you for your sharing.
