For Sore Eyes

Once again I have run out of time to focus on a poet - but seeing as I have three days off work after tomorrow, I will have more time then.

'Leaping Salmon' climber rose.

Meanwhile, with leaden eyelids I will make my way to bed, leaving you with this picture of a budding rose from our garden. I only noticed it for the first time tonight when I arrived back from work. It was just the lift I needed.

I love roses! We had our first below-freezing nights here last night and the night before; the ensuing frost has nipped anything sensitive and actually makes me feel sad. It's as if Mother Nature is saying, "Yes, it is time to let go this year. This year's cycle has come to a close."

I will miss the flowers. Please keep sending me pictures of yours!

Snow fluries promised for tomorrow here - your beautiful rose warms this room!

This rose is in YOUR garden. Just when are you planning on inviting me over? Lovely.

That's lovely - I was at my daughter's house earlier, and her roses are doing her proud this year. She says she wrote a story set in Denmark, and someone told her that roses wouldn't be blooming in July. We agreed that surely they would be blooming by July over there, since here they are already blooming in November.

Orchids on my blog today, from the Singapore Botanic Gardens (but it's too hot over there to really enjoy them)

I still find it amazing that we are in the darkest time of the year, surrounded by sleeping trees and you have the glorious spring to look forward to. What a beautiful bloom to brighten my grey, dark November morning.
