The Last Roses


I am still trying to get my mind around the blooming and growing seasons in SW Florida. I think growing never stops, but blooming times still confound me. These are a couple of roses I captured on my first visit to the botanical garden in January. When I returned a week later they were gone. This seems like the perfect blooming season as it has been somewhat cool but very sunny. I think I shall need to ask one of the volunteers – they are always eager to share information whether asked or not.

In any case, I really like the emotion of both. Especially the gentle comfort of the first. Enjoy.

    • It was more than losing their petals – I think the bushes were taken out. Maybe they were just trimmed back and I didn’t notice because I was checking out the blooms on some shrub roses.
