I've been so bad about keeping up with reading my favorite gardening blogs. It seems like I check Gardening Gone Wild just after their Picture This contest closes each month or just before the new subject is posted. I just happened to look today and found out I have a few hours before the deadline for this month's subject: The End of the Line. Unfortunately I'm not really in the mood to pour through all my photos -- this FL sun has really sapped my energy.
But I mustered enough energy to glance back into my archives and I quickly came across this one from December 2007:
It was a little tea rose that a friend picked up at the grocery store and gave us when she came over for dinner. I think roses are beautiful, but I'm not interested in the amount of work they require. Still it was pretty resilient and bloomed very late into that gardening season. And it was an interesting photo subject during that season's first snow. I doubt this photo will be honored, but I'm too tired to find something better!
