We have enjoyed bright sun today, a gentle sea soaked breeze, and nothing particular on the calendar, aahhhhhh.
The David Austin roses are blooming, the scent of ancient roses, so overwhelming, I will fill the house with them. It is nearly time to say goodbye to the glorious Peonies, this year they gave their all. There were not any casualties due to heavy rain or winds this season and the gigantic blossoms were spectacular. My life's clock in summer ticks now to the passing of each season's flower.
Gather ye rose buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a -flying
and this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.
|William Shakespeare - David Austin Rose|
