AUTUMN ROSE


I stepped out into our back garden today, just to put some rubbish in the bin & this rose caught my eye. My Grandma & Grandad C bought it for my birthday in May & this is the first time it has flowered. I'd been a bit worried that it wasn't happy where I'd planted it & so today I'm delighted. It's chilly & dull & so I snipped the bloom to enjoy on my desk. I can't begin to describe just how beautiful the scent is....isn't it great how such a simple & natural thing can bring happiness? I love how the colours sit together in the photo too. x

I have a few late roses popping up here and there - feel guilty picking them, but sad when they go so quickly in this autumn weather.
