Last but Not Least

I was out and about in the yard today for just a while and came across the Don Juan Rose bush in front of my house and one over by the end of mothers house. There among the signs of fall were a few signs of summer. Three beautiful rose buds just asking to be cut. With scissors in hand out I went with the intentions of just cutting the three buds and putting them in a small vase.

BUT THEN..... I saw the beautiful lime green leaves of the fading Yellow Cannas and the dark green with white flowers of the Glossy Abelia....... So with scissors in hand around the house I went. Tucked in this vase is a touch of Cannas, and Abelia and branches off of the Crape Myrtles and a few branches from the rosemary in front of the house.......... Oh my gosh, they smell wonderful!

It is now sitting on my desk in the shop for me to enjoy for a few days...... as I watch the roses open and their petals fall to the ground, I will remember.............. While the winter causes my world to sleep......... New life is just below the surface waiting for the SonShine........

There ARE three roses....... can you see them?

Just wanted you to know that Moses is better....... He still has to stay in his small cage till Friday but he is doing much better.



  1. Yes, I see the three roses. That is a beautiful arrangement. God gives us such beautiful gifts...if we only take the time to see them. So glad you found the ones He had for you.

    Love you bunches!

  2. I'm so glad Moses is doing better, sweet little bird. It seems like the last bouquet of the year is the most special somehow.

  3. That is good news...I'm so glad Moses is better.

    Your bouguet is lovely and roses are a favorite of....simple pleasures are the best....hugs, Linda
