I went outside walking around the back and took the time to smell the roses, the blooms are different at this time of year. They look a little faded, yet still beautiful in a delicate antique fashion. Roses are so pretty; fresh, slightly faded or pressed, I can linger in a rose garden for hours. It’s interesting that for a flower that conjures up words such as delicate and precious, the roses can be quite hardy, blooming deep into autumn. I aim to enjoy my roses for as long as they allow me these remaining weeks of nice weather.
