A rose in December


I associate December with colours like red for Christmas and white for snow and frost. Yellow suggests to me light, spring and summer. Yet I found this rose today in the Town Park ("Byparken") in Bergen.

In two weeks time we will have winter solstice - I take this as a symbol of the light to come.

even in winter there are still thought of summer going around...

Nice shot of the yellow rose. I think mother nature likes to fool us sometimes.

Beautiful promise of the light to come.

I think Railroad Monday would be a really nice project for YOU! Why don't you start it up? The only problem I see is that railroad pictures might be hard for some folks to get (me included) but it would be a fun challenge.

Love the yellow rose, can't believe you found one, but then we are really cold here. i also like the bluish color of the leaves

I enjoyed seeing your rose still blooming when it is almost winter also.

I had a pink rose on my blog a short while ago and wondered why it was still blooming when it was December too.

Thanks for visiting my site.

Isnt it odd when you happen upon a single flower out in the freezing cold?
