Our former backyard in California ~ definitely taken in June when the hollyhocks were beginning to bloom.
Roses in June… There is just something
ethereal and wonderful about roses which captures
the imagination unlike any other flower
in the garden.
At least for me anyway!
How about you???
All part of $10 thriftshop challenges… 🙂
Whether faux or real
dark or pale
O, how much moredoth beauty beauteous seem,
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give! The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem For that sweet odour which doth in it live. The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye As the perfumed tincture of the roses, Hang on such thorns and play as wantonly When summer’s breath their masked buds discloses: But, for their virtue only is their show, They live unwoo’d and unrespected fade, Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so; Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made: And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth, When that shall fade, my verse distills your truth.
