Today is the Winter Solstice! A day to celebrate! From tomorrow each day will get a little longer, giving a bonus of extra light. So here is a present of a bouquet of frosted roses.
We delight in every rose bud that appears in the winter months and celebrate each and every one that opens out to present us with a bloom. When iced with a crystal layer of white frost they look even better.
I suppose I shall have to prune them down by half to stop the wind rocking the roots loose before too long, and then it will be a long wait until next May to appreciate these delicious blooms once again.

Thank goodness the world didn’t end as predicted! Frost on roses is very beautiful but also makes me feel sad for some reason…. May will be here before we know it!
I know exactly what you mean – there is both beauty and sadness in winter roses.
As frost settles onto a flower I love how it always seems to sit perfectly along the rim of each petal, like a cluster of tiny diamonds. Happy Christmas!
Clever isn’t it? We couldn’t do that could we? Happy Christmas to you and a peaceful and less wet new year.
Frost on roses – beautiful, couldn’t agree more.
