What was once just a pile of sticks has now just put out its first blossom in honor of the Immaculate Conception. This is the florabunda rose and named after Our Lady of Guadalupe. I have another indoor/outdoor statue now in the chapel that I’ll put outside near this rose bush. I’ll have to make a setting for that. Something simple to start. The buds are really very numerous. The rose is a herald of glad tidings. It’s an occasion to become a tiny little child of Mary Immaculate.
