TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ The Rose Gate


I have posted photos of this gate before but from inside the
garden. This time I am showing it to you from the paddock.
Since there were no cows there, the roses bloomed in great
profusion. They have stretched themselves a long way along
the fence.


The black hole is all that is left of the gate and archway. Now
I have to almost go on all fours to exit the garden that way.
Looks like I will have to mount a serious attack with the
pruning shears next autumn.


Moving in a little closer, does anyone volunteer to count the
number of blooms on the whole rose?


Moving closer still, one little bract of blooms is a whole bouquet.



Enlarged they give you a better idea of what they look like and
the last picture will let you see the roses in almost actual size.

My thanks to Luiz Santilly Jr. who hosts this meme as well as his helpers
in its smooth running.

And thank you Luiz for having me as guest friend.

  7. I love this entrance. The roses are very beautiful and there is something enchanting to me about entrances covered in flowers. Also, the water lily you posted as guest host today is fantastic.

  22. I like the way you show the beauty of this lovely rose bush. This is a real treat to my eyes after foggy and cold weather that are lasting for days over here. I am happy to know that you are safe from the terrible floods. I am horrified by the news that I can see on the TV about towns and cities flooded in Queensland.
