Beautiful Reasons








This Red Intuition rose, gifted to me last year by my mother-in-law, is hardy enough to thrive with minimal care - suiting my style of gardening perfectly. 

In this morning's early light three beautiful long stemmed blooms glistened with dew. A hot autumn day of 38C/100+ F is forecast for tomorrow so I decided to cut all three and bring them inside for safe keeping and to fill our home with more Beautiful Reasons to be Happy. I trust you also will find some beautiful reasons to be happy this weekend.

What a stunning rose and the dew looks like glitter. Stay cool tomorrow. Isn't the weather so hot for this time of year? I hope Autumn comes soon. Enjoy your Sunday.

Kwiaty cieszą w ogrodzie, ale w domu również, bo można na nie patrzeć cały czas i podziwiać je. Róża jest piękna. Pozdrawiam.
Flowers have enjoyed in the garden, but also at home, because you can not look at them all the time and admire them. Rose is beautiful. Yours.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Wow - your rose is beautiful and very nicely photographed! Minimal care is my type of flower - I call my flower garden "survival of the fittest" garden. Lucky for me there are some beautiful plants that thrive in spite of me :-)

Seeing Each Day said...

That's perfection right there, both the rose itself and especially your second capture. I'm so pleased you took them inside to further enjoy them. Thank also for your understanding of my dilemma on Friday. It was poor son t... that was an inch away from stepping on it. On the way home in the car when a certain husband was trying to reassure me and say everything was fine, I said 'it could be dangerous, what if it was a brown snake, he replied 'It was fine', I said 'What colour was it?', to which he replied 'brown'. Hope you have a good week.

Karen,

Isn't it wonderful that God didn't leave us in a black and white world? There is beauty all around; we just need to open out eyes.

Beautiful rose!
