Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Final Farewell To Mom’s Mardi Gras Roses
As the time draws to a close and we say goodbye to so many years of family memories. I take this opportunity to share with you all some shots of one of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen that good ole mom just so happens to grow in her garden.
The embrace of changes in life is not an easy thing to do but happens to all of us at some point in time and so… After 29 years in the same place we bid farewell to our family home and an icon in the floral collection of our mom: The Mardi Gras Roses.I shot these during the rain in the afternoon the other day. It makes me think that the roses too recognize this is the last time we’ll see them in our soon to be former home. They too are crying.Mom told us how she won these from the Botanical Garden years and years ago and they’ve grown in her garden ever since.You know how I feelThat’s what I meanThere’s something so whimsical, so elegant, and cool about these roses. The richness and brilliance of its two tone color and the way the petals are shaped and twist. We look forward to seeing these grow in our mom’s next garden.
