These glorious fall leaves decorate and light up our lives with a golden glow.


I have shared photos of my rose arbor in bloom previously but it is so beautiful and fragrant that it bears celebrating again this year. These photos were taken in June so it’s time to publish them. (:

The white blooms are City of York climbers and they are vigorous growers. I keep them cut back and pruned so they do not completely cover the arbor to make room for four David Austin roses. The David Austin roses really make their presence known with a profusion of pinks, oranges and golds.

The fragrances of these roses are intoxicating when I walk under the arbor. I bury my nose in a bloom with my eyes closed and I am lost for a moment in its rosy perfume of spices or lemons.

MORNING-LIGHT
Early morning and late evening light create my favorite views in the garden. When the angle of light is low the contrasts and shadows are strong and create images that are distinct and powerful.

WILD-GINGER-AT-THE-BEACH
I found these tiny glasses to match the Wild Ginger blooms for a sweet arrangement in my kitchen.

SUMMER-IS-HERE
Alleluia! Summer is here!
