In mid-December, I noticed a rose trying to bloom on my bushes. It is very late for a rose to have any sort of bloom here in my part of the world
It had an odd shape, I presume because of the weather.
I did not expect it to bloom, especially after we had a cold snap that sent temperatures plummeting below freezing.
But on Christmas Day, the thing bloomed. It looked a little funny but it was there nonetheless.
