A Fond Farewell

It seems that fall is finally trying to set in around here. I thought I would go out and take a few pictures of the last of the summer flowers.






























When the starkness of winter sets in I will miss their colorful faces.
By posting them here, I can come back and visit during the cold months. Now if only I could preserve their lovely fragrance.

That's funny because Michelle at Back Through Time and I were just saying that it's so hot here. My silly rose bush (that bloomed like mad in a bucket all Summer until I planted it in the ground and it all but died) has suddenly decided to bloom again. I don't get it. But then, I have black thumbs =) Blessings... Polly (p.s. how did you like "Painted Veil"?)

I'm sure you could find some smell that you like at an herbal counter. That might do in a pinch??

Oh Rhonda, listening to this lovely celtic music and looking at these flowers was so wonderful. I felt like I just escaped for a moment :) Alas...children are hollerin' for dinner so there goes my moment!

Hugs,
