Floppy Fall Roses...

I gather roses..
 


just a small handful...
 
I think I am afraid
to pluck them all at once,
I have to ration them out...
 


savoring...
 

 
a treasured china hand vase,
clutches my floppy fall roses...
 
 
chippy porcelain flowers
add to my delight...
 

Love planted a rose,
and the world turned sweet.
Katharine Lee Bates


 
are you savoring the last blooms?
 
Today I am joining...
 
Happy Weekend !

Sweet, simple, and serene post, Bella. ♥ All of my roses are done for the season - except for my Knock-Outs which are all blooming like crazy in this much cooler weather. :) Your roses are THE perfect blush pink color. Love!

Such a beautiful post, Bella. Your roses are so lovely, and they look perfect cupped in those delicate porcelain hands. Sadly, there is little to collect here in my New England garden. Wishing you a lovely week.

The last roses of Summer, so pretty and the vase is gorgeous. My roses are in full bloom now with our warm spring weather.

The Spanish Dahlia said...

Ohhh, such a beautiful and elegant touch of your LAST summer roses!!! Most of my roses are done for the exception of James Galway. Do you have that one? If you don't you must add that special rosebush!!!! You will be in heaven my dear and it keeps getting bigger, healthier, and produces more roses than I could ever dream of having!!! Well ok, I could never have enough roses... LOL! Thanks so much for sharing all the yumminess, I always look forward to what you'll do next!!!
Happy Halloween!
Hugs~ Steph
