Last Rose of Summer


Sometimes a sigh is just a sigh
I will miss you little roses
Sigh of missing
Snow is on the ground
A different kind of beauty
Oh beauty of the day
I will notice today what I notice
and feel JOY in the noticing.

Oh how lovely this day is a rose.
Please pray for continuing peace between North and South Korea and all over the world.
You can imagine how worried I am with today's news.

Love Jeanne♥

I look at the last rose and always marvel at their strength, their determination, their beauty.

I kind of want to be them - though I do like lasting through winter!

Happy Happy Thanksgiving to you, Marilyn!

Reminds me of that beautiful old English song 'The Last Rose of Summer' I sang it at school and now have it on C.D, I hope you know it.

Nice picture. I actually have a bud on my azalea bush! It will get zapped tonight though. I did get a picture of it.

That is a lovely photo. Your roses must have been spectacular at their peak. You've made me wonder if I will see any snow this winter, but more importantly, to notice the beauty of the day.

Such beauty - all there for the right eyes to see it.

We must be thinking on the save wavelength. I don't know if I'll get it posted, but just a couple weeks ago, I took a photo of my last rose of summer, too.

That is exactly the word I've been looking for when I see a rose struggling into the winter - a sigh. Beautifully put.
