LAST PETALS


A photo from my Rose Garden archives. I haven't had time to take any new pictures. I hope you enjoy the spent rose from last month.

Hi there,just put on your blog and enjoyed the great pics.

I also have a 'koosh ball tree'. Someone told me it was a chestnut, but I tried one or two last fall and they don't taste very good. I guess they improve if you roast and salt them, which is very common on the streets of London.

Nice pics, will visit again, (Mrs) Outhouse Capital of Canada.

What an unusual rose picture - we usually see them only when the roses are still with all the petals on. But it is beautiful just like this, too!

Great photo! Such vibrant colors. Hope the "settling in" is going well for you. For me, the worst part of moving is the unpacking!!

There is even beauty in fading roses. This has an interesting shape and lovely soft colors.

I know I've left a comment before. But each time I look at this flower, it just takes my breath away. It almost looks like a painting! You should frame this one!!
