I was out admiring this lovely and fell in love with all the many little veins that each petal has.
I was thinking it was pretty cool that I still had flowers blooming in January but I went outside the other day in order to get a photo of my whole row of roses that are growing in the front yard and I discovered my gardeners handy work. A large pile of roses at the end of my driveway waiting for the garbage man and a bunch of short sticks sticking out of the ground. I didn’t have the heart to photograph them. He reassured me that they’ll grow back bigger and more beautiful if he cuts them this short once a year. So, I’m trying be patient and not too disappointed.
