Capturing A Moment In Time

Photograph by Kilroy_60
I have rarely published a photograph that related in any way to the content of my postings. Today, though, I cut what is likely to be the final rose of the season from the garden. This is it. {the best of six shots} I hope you enjoy.

That is so beautiful. I wish I had a green thumb, I've yet to meet a plant of flower I can't kill within 72 hours! Lucky that you are that you don't suffer the same ailment... lvoe flowers but I'll view from afar! ~M

I envy you being able to do this! We're in the thick of full blown fall...only the hardy fall mums are doing well!
My fav roses are the yellow ones....but I'll take anything I can get! Hope you put it in a wonderful exalted place!

A wonderful picture of a beautiful rose. There are very few flowers left here, after the frost we've had a few nights, but the foliage is still worth looking at. And the air is crisp and heady. I love the autumn! Even seeing such a beautiful image and knowing it is probably the last for the season doesn't make me love it any less. In fact, I think we'd prize roses much less if they bloomed all the time.

I love mine. I planted so many but only the pink ones survived. I will one day have a healthy lavendar rose, as they are my favorite.

The last rose of the season.......a bittersweet moment to be certain....but autumn brings the portent of change: things seem to burn brighter, more intense, before the quiet of winter descends. Spring will come to bring us the new.....a chance to be reminded of the nature of cycles and vice versa.

I wish I enjoyed gardening and yard work. I love having a beautiful yard full of beautiful plants and flowers but I absolutely despise yard work!

I planted some herbs in containters in the spring and they were all dead by mid-summer. Sigh. And I haven't watered my geraniums in weeks but somehow they are still hanging on. What I need is self-watering plants.
