The Real Corn Rose

This is Corn Rose, my mother. She is the main character in my book. As you know, it is fiction with much of Rose’s oral history throughout. I hope you’ll read her story.

She always said, “Youth is fleeting.” To me she will always be beautiful, and a part of my soul.

This picture was take a couple of years before her passing. She loved flowers, and especially admired my Christmas Cactus that year. I couldn’t resist taking this shot of her.

This the same plant getting ready to bloom again.

I can just hear her purr over it’s buds and exclaim how beautiful it will be… just in time for Thanksgiving.
