Behold we count them happy which endure...James 5: 11
Since I lost my previous hot rating on the challenge "Grin and Bare it"...I did just that... grinned , bore it and then started over again with a new self portrait:) Keeps me in practice but I just hope you aren't getting tired of my mug. LOL One of these times I'll get it right...I added the watercolor filter on this one as I wanted the flowers to stand out...
I am posing with this rose bush, named John Cabot Rose that I bought yesterday at a garden shop which had just newly opened. This climbing rose bush is a heavy duty plant , winter hardy and it should endure ..... I had been saving my money for quite awhile that I got from friends last November after mother's funeral to buy some roses in her memory....
A strange thing happened as I was preparing to do another self portrait in case this one didn't turn out .. the battery went dead, which isn't unusual... but I couldn't believe my eyes when a Mourning Cloak butterfly flew right where I would have been standing if the battery had discharged.. .I believe that was a sign from my mother telling me she is happy with her new life in her heavenly home and also she is approving of these beautiful roses in her memory...
