It's so amazing how some flowers just merrily bloom, no matter what the weather is like! My red miniature rose, light pink rose and snow-white "cup of milk" flowers have all bloomed out this week while we went through record-breaking low temps this week.
(Click on the pics for a closer look at the raindrop jewels!)
I don't care if the cold winds blow,
I don't care if there's frost or snow,
I don't care if it's two-below,
I insist on blooming!
Friends around me may wilt and fall,
But I will stand up straight and tall,
My Creator has done it all,
Yes, I insist on blooming!

This all reminds me of these favorite verses of mine...
