Yellow rose

A yellow rose holding healing and warmth as those of us in the northern hemisphere head into the winter season.

As most of you know, we recently flew to Colorado to be with our daughter who was recovering from major surgery. She is improving and doing well. Ironically, about 36 hours ago, I contracted what is euphemistically called a "food-borne" disease, but should be more accurately termed "gastro-intestinal hell"! I'm improving, too, but it will be awhile before we're back home and back to normal. At that time, I'll do my best to catch up on your blogs and commenting.

Thank you for your various expressions of concern and care. This is a great blogging community of which to be a part.

Beautiful image. Red roses are gorgeous, but I prefer yellow.

Here's wishing you (and daughter) a speedy recovery.

I like roses and their fragrances very much. Very good shot.

I hope your daughter is well again. My best wishes to her and to you. Everything is going to be alright.

Gastro hell eh? Ouch! A quick recovery for you and I am glad to hear your daughter is doing well.
Good karma coming down on you both. MB

First of all, so relieved your daughter is getting better. Am still sending good vibrations. This rose seems soft, lovely, and fragrant.

Too bad about your food-borne illness....not fun.

Feel better. Food poisoning is no fun. Soon you'll be out smelling the roses again!

Take care of yourself. We'll all be here when you return.

Glad to hear that your daughter is on the mend. I hope you don't stay in hell too long!

In other news, I found a ton of old photos from when I lived in France/Switzerland last night. More fodder for my travel blog. Yay!!! I still haven't found any from London though. It's a pity b/c I went there pretty often with the Eurostar.

Yellow roses are my favorite!
Glad your daughter is on the mend. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Giulia said...

Dear Jacob, it's not a problem if you are in late with the blogs, we'll have patience, the thing important is your health and your daughter's health, isn'it ?

Daryl said...

Feel better ... lovely photo with its soft focus is sort of a metaphor for the way your lives have been lately.

That rose is like a ray of sunshine. Poor you. I hope you are back to great health soon! Take care!

Enjoy the weekend - whatever the weather!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

OH! I'm so sorry you caught something nasty, Jacob. You are probably well by now - three days later. At least I hope you are!

Take care...
Re your query on my post, N8 is the new smartphone from Nokia which has a 12mp camera! Have been given the phone to try and give feedback.

Lynette said...

Lovely photo. So glad that you and your daughter are on the mend. That GI Hell is an awful place to be. I agree 100% with your comment about serendipity--it's one of my favorites states of existence.

cieldequimper said...

Sorry I am so late, I had one hell of a week.

La gastro-entérite, how horrible, I feel for you but I'm glad you are all on the mend.

Sharon said...

Sounds like you could use big bouquet of these right now! Get well soon!

nopham said...

Get well soon, and best wishes!

Marie said...

Dear Jacob, I hope you will both have recovered very soon and your life will return to normal. Have a nice Sunday despite the health problem.
