Marilyn in the Cold

These are photos of my Marilyn Monroe rose that I took this morning. Brrr …

Marilyn Monroe is considered an apricot-colored rose, but the color of rose blooms is often affected by temperatures and seasons. This last bloom of the year was a true pink, but with lime green outer petals – stunning, even in the cold.

    • It is frost. I think that the rose was actually frozen. Our low temps have been in the mid-20’s the last few nights and I took those pictures fairly early this morning. Thanks for the note, David!
