Smelling The Roses
We took a play-day today with a trip to Staples to stimulate the economy with a new printer, a stroll through the Stars and Splendid Antique Malls and then a late lunch and micro-brews at Hopworks Urban Brewery.
When we got home I indulged myself with a 45 minute cat nap then I decided to take the camera to the garden and smell the roses.
We have had such a hot and dry Summer that the garden is pretty crispy by now but I did find a few click-worthy roses to share.
Next year we are moving the side fence forward and will be "remodeling" the rose garden. We are going to try moving some of them but others are so old and raggedy I think they will be replaced.
You notice most of these pictures are pinks. Reds are one of the colors to be replaced and oh, there is an orange that is my favorite and I really hope we will be able to save that one. We have a very mature garden and some of the roses are so crowded out that they hardly have a chance.
When my eyes see the "big picture" of my garden it just looks so dry and done. I am glad I took a close-up look because there is still beauty when I just look at the details. Look closely, good to remember.
I hope there is some beauty in your weekend!
