While we might be short of water, and other things, here in the Western Cape, one thing we are not short of is – sunlight!

post script: Sunlight always makes me think of this beautiful song written by John Denver in 1971 and performed by Andy Williams; so let me share with you “Sunshine on my shoulders”.

 

The Last Rose

Rose 1

Ethereal and delicately pale; this last rose of Autumn.

My daughter’s floribunda rose bush has continually produced pink blooms since the start of Spring, six months ago.

Rose 2

This is what it looked like then, in October last year.

I thought it interesting that these two photos, taken so far apart, were so similar; the position of the rose and buds being almost identical.

Although my Autumn rose is a little faded now, all it needs is dead-heading one last time before it has a little siesta.

Then it will be back in business for its winter blooming!
