Just a Bit of Pink...

The wind and rain stopped for today...
 a little trip around the garden
was in order...

(click photos to enlarge)

There among all the falling leaves,
and yes mud...

Was one tiny Guadalupe Rose
the last for this season...

Her pink petals so soft and subtle...


I paired her with a sprig of Dusty Miller
it's soft silvery shade and velvet leaves
seemed just right....


The silver gave me an excuse
to play with my new faux mercury glass votive cups
(from Target only ninety-nine cents each!)


A tiny vignette of flowers
to gaze upon on the cool night ahead :-))

Tonight I am joining...

better late then never!
Feathered Nest Friday at The French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Vignette Friday at Color Outside the Lines
and
come visit for more pink delights :-)

Thanks for visiting me today!

Sigh...I didn't see those votives at Target on my last visit, I looked and looked for mercury glass as they're famous for having it for uber cheap! Good for you! A stunning photo of the rose, thanks so much for sharing. tami from the high street cottage.

Oooooh! I have to get those votives! Did you buy them recently? That is so wonderful to still have roses. I picked the last of my dahlias (unless we get some warm days to bring out the buds).

Brenda Kula said...

Dusty Miller lends such a soft, wispy touch to any flower. But especially to the feminine rose. I noticed I still have some red roses left outside.
