My garden is drooping and dieing
from lack of water. I dared not go out
to see the devastation, yet as we came
back from our usual evening walk to the
park and once around the fast disappearing
pond, I saw a mass of pink and lo, the back
gate was bathed in a glory of colour!
From the paddock the fence was awash with them.
It looked like the barrier of Sleeping Beauty's castle.
The mass of blooms was prodigious
I wanted to embrace them all
and but for the equally prodigious thorns,
would have done so.

My thanks to the brilliant organizers of this meme.

Hi Arija, "Der spanische Rosenstock". What a wonderful sight and surprise. I do not think this rosebush could bear more flowers. It says:" take heart not all is lost." I hope that you get rain soon.ReplyDelete

ich würde gerne unser Wasser mit dir teilen, aber leider sind die Arme zu kurz.
Aber es ist wunderbar die leuchtenden Rosenfarben zu sehen.

It was a ~tea rose~ with the most delicious scent that lasted 2 weeks indoors! Thank you for linking!
