Celebrating gardens, photography and a creative life
A little bit of summer hiding still.
The leaves are still looking heathy which you can’t take for granted later in the season.
The sweetest, perhaps, because the end is near.
Late roses tend to be smaller and more raggedy, but you’re right – they have a particular sweetness.
A shy one!
It does look like it’s peeping out. 🙂
Oh, thank you! What a lift to my day! I love the contrasts of the woolly with the satiny, the tops with the undersides of the leaves, and the focused bud with the dreamy background buds. What are those woolly things? Some kind of artemisia?
Good question. I have delayed answering hoping to put a name to it, but so far have drawn a blank. I will find out but it could take some time!
Thank you for trying! But it seems to me that if YOU don’t know its name then it doesn’t have one. Give up looking and then it will appear. There is nothing that guarantees finding something more than giving up looking for it! Fact.
That was the plan, I’m afraid: to give up looking, but file away the need to memory for when the name appears, as it will.
Great photo! Thanks for sharing!
I’m glad you liked it.
So lovely, and what a great post for Wordless Wednesday! I love the idea!
I liked the mix of young and old, with the silvery foliage around the rose.
Making me hope the bud blooms
I’m sure your hopes will come to fruition or rather florition.
