Summer Days...

Summer Days...

when the clouds clear,
and so does your mind...

the warm days embrace you,
lulling you into daydreams...

I pick roses,
and arrange them,
nothing fancy...


just tucking the fragile blooms,
here and there...


savoring...



summers best...


"They are not long,
 the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream."
 

Ernest Dowson

Happy Weekend Everyone!
Don't forget to
Smell the Roses...

As always--so pretty! I am having a love affair with my Eden and Wildeve roses right now.

A fantastic post Bella. I wish my garden was spread with sunshine. Overhere the heavy rain makes it difficult for the roses to show there beauty. But the positive of the rain is the garden looks beautiful green.
Have a great weekend

I still have one rose that's ready to bloom -- my tea rose "Garden Party". All the others have already gone by, here in New England. But it was lovely while they lasted!
