|Sterling Silver, old rose's last bloom.|
Oh yes, we will have some gorgeous warm days now, but the sun is setting earlier and earlier and the signs are all there.
A huge clue for me is when my Sterling Silver rose puts out one last burst of glorious lavender color and although the floribunda has several blooms, usually only one has its trademark scent in any density.
So, that day has arrived. I picked it so I can enjoy it inside for a few days, but there won't be many.
And unfortunately, I cannot provide you, my dear readers, with a sample sniff... it's a heady rose smell, really quite strong, with an energy that just heals you as you inhale. I cannot describe it much better than that.
Please enjoy the photos and intend with me that we all enjoy the fall and all the beauty it will bring us as we let the roses rest for another season. (Shot with my Canon EOS Rebel with a telephoto and a macro, just for fun.)
