Roses by George Eliot

You love the roses – so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

Rose Soft PinkI added a Hoya Softener(B) filter to my macro lens to give this Rose a dreamy look.

Rose Pink VariegatedThe side morning light on this variegated pink rose I thought was really nice. I love white picket fences. Don’t you?

White RoseThis rose-bush was huge and had big clusters of white roses slightly tinged with pink.


I found the majority of Roses in my neighborhood just about done. Is it me or did they have their season early this year?
