Today's Flowers - Post 100


Rose - "Oklahoma"
(click to enlarge photo)

The year's last rose from this bush in my garden. Not only are the petals beautiful, but the blossoms have a heady rose fragrance; a lovely combination.

Ask me no more where Jove bestows
When June is past, the fading Rose;
For in your beauty's orient deep
These flowers, as in their causes, sleep.[song]

I sometimes think that never blows so red
The Rose as where some buried Ceasar bled.[The Rubaiyat]

And etc etc.

Thank you for being so quick to read my new post. I have had to return it to draft so that my daughter FFF can tidy it up for me.

What a beautiful rose. We have camellias and encore azaleas right now. Looks more like spring than fall.
