Unfortunately it's cloudy out so the picture really does not do this flower justice.
This rose appeared the day Empress passed away. It was a just a bud then, but as it's bloomed it's made me think about her, remember her, and miss her. These are brand new roses--they were not supposed to bloom yet, yet this one bloom first appeared on Monday.
It also wasn't supposed to be such a vibrant pink. It was supposed to be light pink.
Vibrance....life. I wonder if she's trying to tell me something?
Speaking of life, Samson loves every minute of his.
We should all strive to love life as much as he does :)
Oh, Boogie, you make me smile so.... Happy Dog, Happy Life!
