This rosebud was enticed by the milder autumnal climate here we have been enjoying, but when the frosts suddenly hit it was nipped, in the bud, so to speak.
This rose will not open, and the tightly packed petals are gradually slipping away, but there is also a strange kind of beauty in that itself.
