Friday Photo - A Rose with Attitude

I saw this rose on my way to work last week and stopped to take photos.  See how dedicated I am to all you bloggy friends.  I went out of my way to take its picture because this is no ordinary rose.  No ma'am, this rose is:

a)  Working on providing the most spectacular setting for a port-a-potty.

b) The little-rose-that could, working to make the world more beautiful one junkyard at a time.

c) Both.

You've got to admire persistance like that.  Even the graffitti on the port-a-potty seems impressed.

Thanks rose!  We could do with more like you.

  1. Grace, you are a woman after my own heart. I can only imagine what people thought, with you there taking pictures of a porta potty. They're beautiful.

  2. Great post, love your blog style! Glad I found you...oh, and Connie above is really cool, so if she's here, you're really cool too...

    Oh, for more roses such as this...

  3. Roses round the door indeed!

  4. I wondered what people thought as well - especially since there was a security camera (you can see it in the third photo down on the left side of the picture). It was a pretty muddy day as well, so I had to wipe my shoes off when I got to work. The things I do for my bloggy friends.

  5. I love that rose and you're so right, we could use lots more roses that make even the most mundane things prettier and sweeter smelling too!

I am glad that Brenda sent me over to welcome you and I am your newest follower. Come by for a visit when you get a chance!!

  7. What an amazing pink rose - I wonder what the name of it is. Just shows you that beauty can be found in the strangest places.

  8. Just stopped by from C.L.H. and I'm here to stay. What a great perspective you have on things. I can read between the lines and love the humor.
