Rosebud

Because my travel blog is currently talking about my vacation with mom in Pangasinan last July, my Ruby Tuesday photo for today was taken from that vacation as well.



Rosebud

This is a not-so-good shot of one of the very few rosebuds in my Aunt Rosa's garden. When grandpa was still alive, Aunt Rosa took care of him, but seeing her father bedridden saddened my Aunt, so using the land around their house, she planted lots of different flowering plants to cheer her up.

There weren't that much flowers in the garden, two strong typhoons visited their place that destroyed some of the plants, but this rose managed to have some buds, and of course, I didn't take it for granted. =)

When we were there last November (2007), they were at first interested why we (brother and I) take lots of pictures of their garden and animals, but I guess they already embraced the fact that we loved taking pictures of anything that fancies us, in fact, Aunt Rosa's husband (Uncle Marcial) even guided me to some of their flowers so I could take pictures of it, too! =)

Sweet family story to go with your delicate rose. My daughter, the one who shrieked every time we went over some rapids in our canoe, says your flower is beautiful.

That's gotta be one tough rose to stand up to 2 typhoons! Great story, and a great photo.
thanks for stooping by earlier!

That rosebud is beautiful!

The bud shows the style and beauty to become. The bud is a mere baby, but is growing up fast.

So nice. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Delightful shot! There is something quite magical about a single rose bud! A little like the hope of spring waiting to bloom!
