Small Bloom On The Desert Rose

Our Desert Rose lay dormant much of the winter.
At one point it began leafing out, as though it were
spring time.  A cold snap damaged the small delicate
leaves and they dropped off.  I wondered when or if
we would see the sweet Rose blooms this year at all.
I watched as the leaves came and then last
week was delighted in a tiny pink bud.

It's small, but oh so very beautiful, this 
new Desert Rose bloom.

Some of the leaves are abnormal in appearance,
but I'm glad to see them.

Welcome, sweet cottage Desert Rose.....
we are glad to see you.

Have a wonderful day!  Dee Dee
