What A Delightful Surprise

Thanksgiving Day Roses
Cecile Brunner
The house was all decorated for the fall season
and the Thanksgiving spirit.
Long ago the Cecile Brunner Roses
had finished their bloom.
Each spring and early summer they give us
a glorious display over the front entry gate
and then that was it until the following year.

Early Spring


But on Thanksgiving day there they were
covering the arbor over the front entry gate
with their sweet pink flowers.

This was a first.

As friends and family arrived
they were greeted with cascading roses and
the lovely fragrance of Spring.

What a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise.


  1. That is a beautiful photo! I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving. I love the fragrance in the air in spring and summer when all the flowers are blossoming, especially the pink roses. We've had them since I was a little girl and each time I smell them, I think back to those days.

    I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
