A Free Rose

A check-out clerk handout me a free rose at Kroger. The leaves had wilted but the flower was still pretty.

I photographed it on our deck. All the greenery in the background comes from pine trees, which stay green all year round.


  1. what a sweet thing to do - and a beautiful rose it is xx

  2. Thanks, Pat! I appreciate flowers so much more in the winter when so much of nature is sleeping.
