Late Bloomer

It's winter.  Most flowers are hibernating, waiting for spring.  Of course there are the stalwarts.  The paperwhites and jonquils, the daphne, and the violets.  But these are winter flowers.  They are MEANT to flower now.

But this little beauty?

It seems to have forgotten that roses aren't meant to flower in winter.

While the rest of it's bush is a leafless thorny bramble, this little beauty decided to open it's face to the wintery world.

As it's right beside our front door, I got front seat viewing.  Beautiful.

I love those wee roses that manage to bloom when everything else is in hibernation!
Blessings and love
