Angel Face...

 
For me,
my garden is a slice of heaven on earth...
 

so when I found this sweet lazy cherub,
lounging on a birdbath,
 
I knew I had to bring him home...
 


the bath is very short in stature...
 
and,
 I may say birdbath,
but my dogs are sure this is their new
very convenient,
no bending your neck to drink,
water bowl...
 


 
the days on the calendar are passing
so quickly,
I am not ready to embrace the fall yet...
 

I want to pause
 to enjoy,
 every moment,
of these last days of summer...
 



 

contemplating roses...
 


 
floating roses,
just because...
 


 
scattering petals,
just because...
 

 
napping in the sun,
just because...
 
I am joining,
 
I hope your soaking up
these last days of summer...

I can see why you had to have that beautiful bird bath. I would have wanted it also. It looks so well with the roses in it. I know you will enjoy it for many years.
Happy Thursday

How beautiful your bird bath is Bella,especially with the lovely roses floating. I was just starting to feel that warmth of Spring and then the rain came and came and hasn't stopped,but the garden is loving it. x

Such a darling cherub for your garden! Your roses are still fantastic, I see. I know your head is still in summer, but I'm loving that pale pink for fall too. Lucky pups! xx

I would not be able to pass that birdbath up either. It just cheers the heart. My roses have not been doing well this year. They have some sort of disease wher the leaves and buds are shriveled and dry looking.

Bella what a beautiful birdbath. Where did you find that special birdbath. I have a cherub bird bath that I love but this one stole my heart.

Such a lovely rose and birdbath. Our dog thinks the birdbath is his exclusively and chases the birds away. Enjoy your fall.

What a darling little birdbath, Bella. I can see why you had to bring it home with you. :) As much as I love autumn's crisp cool days, I always have a hard time letting go of the long, sunny, lazy days of summer.... :)

What a beautiful addition to your garden, Bella... the angel perfectly captures the serenity of your home.

That birdbath is just gorgeous, Bella. It does make the right height for your furry friends to drink out of...lol....At least they will be blessed while they slurp with that little angel watching over them. xo Diana
