Autumn Roses

'Angel Face' Rose has blessed us with one last bloom. 

The Garden Angel gazes lovingly at her namesake. 

Above her, tiny, ruffled, 'Pink Grootendorst' 
competes for attention. 

We have had a very mild October. 

Fuchsia also continues to bloom. 

Whitey Bear rests nearby. 

'First Prize' lives up to its name! 
You can see how large her blossoms are
by my nearly hidden hand. 

I planted all three of these roses just this spring. 

They are gifting me with one last flush of blooms. 

'Joseph's Coat' blooms alongside. 

My succulent 'Bird Bath Planter' is 
in the foreground. 

I planted this rose, named 'Peace', in commemoration 
of my Dear Mother and Father.

My Mother loved yellow roses. 

This beautiful climber grows right alongside my deck. 

It started budding a few days before my parent's anniversary. 

I watched the rosebuds every day....

Slowly the buds unfurled....

And then, right on the exact date of my parent's 
anniversary, they bloomed. 

I always gave them a dozen yellow roses 
to commemorate their special day. 

And now they are sending me yellow roses. 

A symbol of their love.

I plucked a bloom in remembrance.

And opened a page to find
captured blossoms from lovely summer days

And a favorite poem.

The Angels are smiling.....
