As the women prepare dinner for the rest of the family,Esperanza notices that Miguel and Alfonso are doing something secretive outside.

Later, Miguel leads Mama, Esperanza, and the rest of the family behind the cabin. Alfonso and Miguel have fashioned a shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe with a small garden of roses around it -Papa's roses. Miguel confesses that he and Alfonso saved some of the roses after the fire and carried them to California in an oilcloth. When she sees roses from both hers and Miguel’s old rose bushes, Esperanza is moved.
