The Rose of Sharon is Now Unfurled *

Rose of Sharon is NOW unfurled* see below

Thanks to a comment by Yvette of Priorhouse blog I looked up Rose of Sharon in Grapes of Wrath click to read of the symbolism of her name and character. It’s been a long time since I read it.

I’d mentioned the Bible reference before from the Song of Solomon

*I’d posted a Rose of Sharon blossom recently and declared it unfurled but it was truly furled and had only become unfurled now . “transitive verb. : to release from a furled state. intransitive verb. : to open out from or as if from a furled state : unfold.”

I was incorrect although I haven’t edited the post. Yet.

  1. I like the contrast between the rose in the foreground and the bricks in the background. Nice!

    • You’re exactly right cousin. No dunce here. Just sloppy proofing! Thanks for the edit, Prof.

  2. We love your photos. We have Rose of Sharons on the side of our house. There are a few growing wild in the woods behind our house. One time I dug up four young plants and transplanted them in her back yard in Philly. Two grew to bloom and I do not have a green thumb. Point being they are as hardy as they are beautiful. Then again your photos bring out the beauty in so many of your subjects.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
