Summer's Last Fling with Roses

The roses in my garden still shine.
Often I look out the window and find someone smelling
them or taking a picture on their phone.
I love that the roses delight the neighbors throughout
the Spring and into the Autumn.
Touched by the sun.

As I have shared before, the rose garden near my house.
Others also delight in the garden of roses.

"I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there."
~John Vance Cheney

 Happy Weekend, dear friends!!
Go out and smell the roses.

Marilyn, your garden roses are so pretty. I love the soft yellow ones. That's nice that you let the neighbors take pictures of them any time. I also have a rose garden near my home. It is taken care of by the city. I often go there just to gaze upon the roses. This one is nice with the waterfall in the center. That last picture speaks to me, it's so pretty.

Enjoy the weekend, Marilyn.

Your roses are always such stunners. It's pretty clear you all work on them very hard! Nice joy to you and live in gardener, whom I hope is feeling much better by now.
