This and that...

My new inspiration board... I'm in love! ;)

Perfect roses, wilting roses, spent roses, they're all so beautiful to me...

And then, in the garden... all of my senses are aroused. The feel in the air, the subtle scent of autumn so magnificent, the splendor of twilight and magic lingering in the atmosphere...

I wish I could capture some of the magic in the palms of my hands and blow it towards wherever you are…

The sound of the wind and the taste of homemade apple tart and hot chocolate in the porch...

The roses are about to put out one last show, and they're brimming with buds and healthy green leaves. Here's a lovely crown for this mischievous cherub, made of roses from the Dawn Creeper Shrub Rose...

So pretty...

This evening, after I got home I pruned the last of the summer flowers—the Black-eyed Susan and the last of the Shasta daisies, to give way to the autumn glories and all the mums that brought so much joy last year and were suffocated by the tall grasses and exuberance of the summer flowers.

Flowers hold so much beauty... even wilting and already in the trash they still look so lovely to me....

Thank you for comming by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my photographs. Oh and I almost forgot to mention it... The other evening in the garden something marvelous happened. I swear I saw a lovely gypsy girl in her blue shoes, who stopped in for a visit. Was she secretly you? ;)
