Creation: The Little Red Rose

Please take a good look at this picture and tell me what is the dominant flower color you see.

It’s red, right?
There are FOUR clusters of little red roses; each cluster is a separate plant.
If you click the pic to enlarge, you’ll see that I painted, in yellow, arrows pointing to each cluster. Above each arrow is a number: #1, #2, #4, #5.
Here’s another pic of two other little red rose plants. I painted, in dark red, arrows pointing to each plant, and the numbers #3 and #6.

That’s the little red rose that followed me 200 miles, about which I first wrote in October 2011. (Please click here to read that account!)
Six years ago, when I moved from my townhouse in a city 200 miles away to join my husband, I took my many pots of flowering plants (mainly roses) with me. But I had to abandon two little red rose plants because they grew in the ground.
Two years after I moved here, the little red rose miraculously sprang up in a large pot of mauve-colored roses (#1). Then, another little red rose shot up in a pot of salmon-colored roses 2 feet away (#2). Then the little red rose somehow managed to propagate itself across a brick path (see composite pic below) to yet another pot of pink-colored roses (#3). Then, a little red rose began sprouting from the ground (#4), then in yet another pot (#5), then across the brick path again to a pot of yellow-colored roses (#6).

Six years ago, I was in anguish because I thought I was abandoning the little red rose to certain death.
But the little red rose didn’t abandon me.
And now it’s the dominant rose in the garden!
“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” (Matthew 6:28-29)
For our God is a loving God. May He be praised!

Looks like you might even have nasturtiums. If so, then they are on the edible list. As are roses (if not treated with pesticides).


sorry Doc. My eyes tend to wander to the pinks and the taller roses in the sunshine! ;o)


Beautiful! Your garden is a feast for our eyes and our spirits. Flowers don’t do that well for me but I do have a lovely patch of herbs with rosemary, oregano and parsley and even some peppermint.


Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this beautiful post! God performed a miracle for you because of your goodness and because you love His creation. How wonderful!!! Your garden is just gorgeous!
I, too, have many fresh herb plants and I so enjoy cooking with them. My geraniums, which remind me of my mother, are so happy this year, as is my fucia, lobelia and verbena. I thank God for His exquisite creation!
