Back in December, Abbey’s rose was the last one blooming in my garden. I repotted it and brought it inside for the winter, unsure of what to expect. Happily, it just started blooming. A small victory over winter! (Pun intended: this cute bloom is about the size of my thumbnail.)
A lovely day to you!
Indeed, I think you can count that as a true victory.
You never know what is going to happen. Maybe the rose just know it would give lift to your winter.
