Tonight may be the end of this years roses as a relatively hard freeze is predicted for tonight, and so I wanted to document the beauty of the last few bouquets here...
|Purple Iceberg with Sheer Bliss and some sage on the left, |
my Rosie Posie's favorite rose, Angel Face, on the right.
|Sunset Celebration on the left, Marmalade Skies on the right...|
both with white cosmos and sage.
|Oklahoma, with marigolds.|
It is always so hard to see them go, they are usually at their finest when the freeze hits...with so many buds ready to bloom that it is truly a sad thing to see them go each fall.
I enjoy the small pleasure the flowers bring...their scent and color as I drink a cup of tea, the enjoyment of arranging a vase, the delight of wandering the garden and seeing a new beauty growing, watching a single bud unfold in the silver vase on the bathroom counter...
It is said that all good things must end, but I know that, in the Spring, my roses will bloom again.
