The Last Rose Of Summer ......




~   Rosa Crepuscule   ~



"T'is the last rose of summer
left blooming alone
all her lovely companions
 are faded and gone"
Thomas Moore


Crepuscule a soft apricot,  french tea- noisette 
 is the last rose to bloom in my garden for a while

Great shots of your beautiful climbing rose!
I look forward to my roses start blooming!

As you leave summer, we are moving into Spring.

A fine image of the rose.

A beautiful macro shot Dianne. What a pity we'll not see the roses again for a while - but never mind, now is the season for a host of other beauties to wave their heads at us!

That is an exquisite image Dianne, I think roses are one of the best things about summer. This one looks very much like my 'Just Joey' which is a David Austin English rose, I bet it smells divine.

Great shot...unfortunately roses don't do too well here with the humidity. I'd love to grow roses, but my balcony is just too small!

Ann said...

Its a beautiful soft colour. A lovely bloom.

The last rose...bitter sweet. You should come up to the US and do summer all over again - and then we will follow you home in the fall!

Stephanie said...

This is gorgeous, nice peach coloring.

Ebie said...

She is so peachy...even the dried edges, she is still very pretty.

Nice capture!

She is a stayer and a beautiful one too. You are getting pretty handy with that new camera.

Lindy MacDuff said...
