Three red roses

I’ve got used to there being roses well into the winter, but the rose bush that produced these specimens has surpassed itself.

Its leaves have mostly gone, so the twigs are holding out red hips and red blooms like a forest of head boppers.

I wish the holly tree next door to it would take a leaf out of its book. It has six berries, all on one small branch rather hidden from view. If the birds had noticed, it wouldn’t even have those.

I wish all my visitors a JOYFUL AND PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS.
