Wordless Wednesday February 17, 2021

 The last rose of winter....
this single little rose just today fell off
the little rose bush it had been attached
to for months...seriously!
But the extreme weather finally convinced
the rose that it needed to be on the snow
and not on the stem!
After I took that photo I had fun stamping my
footsteps on our neighbors driveway. 

They are in Costa Rica and therefore I can have
fun on their snow! It will melt long before 
they are home! 
PS I did shovel off their sidewalk!
Have a lovely Wednesday!


  1. THat is a beautiful photo! SNow is everywhere no matter where we live. We are use to it but I feel badly for the folks who are not use to it. I love the footprints in the snow. You are always a kid at heart in the snowy days. Take care and thanks for sharing
