These are some pictures I took of a single rose growing in my yard. I couldn't decide which shot to use so I used them all.
My husband was painting the foundation of the house and I had to clean up as many flowers as I could. Somehow I just couldn't cut this one.I love roses,I can remember when I was little my Grandfather had a beautiful rose garden .
It had a short white picket fence on three sides with a huge grape arbor in the back. The grapes grew up an over the top. He had a full size swing hanging from framework so in late summer you could go sit & swing in the shade and enjoy the sweet smell of the ripening grapes.
If only we could travel back in time to those simple days of childhood.

  1. That is so lovely - hasn't it been a wonderful October? I still have a few blooms on my humble little rose bushes too. I think in January everyone should post their October garden pics to give us hope for spring!
