Super Saturday -Enjoying the roses..

One of the last blooms in our garden. This goes towards the Saturday Snapshot meme
This is what I thought of the seasons this year...:

The seasons this year,
seemed a little confused around here;

We had warm weather in February 
followed by a long, cold spring 
which meant that the plants and trees 
they were just a little addled and thinking - 
"Should our flowers bloom or not?" 
This was followed by a late summer 
which lasted a little longer than it does 
and so now I am still enjoying some roses
though it is almost December!


Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. 

Six Word Saturday -Six Word Saturday sponsored by Show My Face. It's quite simple--all you need to do is describe your life in six words. -:
Enjoying the roses in our garden.

  4. The rose has everything, and is my favorite flower.
    I recall being in The Butchart Gardens [Victoria] when I lingered in the rose section until I completely lost track of time, enmeshed in the beauty and the fragrance of the best flowers on earth.
    Gorgeous photo.
