Last of Summer's Grace and Charm

As the depth and breadth of autumn fills our days, small reminders of summer's grace can still be found. The simple elegance of a red rose, antiqued by Mr. Jack Frost as he visits in the night, has it's own beauty as it fades from blood red to tones of taupe. Touches of pale pink appear, and dimension and crinkly charm can be seen in the last hurrah as winter nears. Learning to enjoy each season as it comes it so vital for a positive approach to life, just like learning to enjoy each of life's seasons is important to our emotional well-being. Lessons from a simple red rose.

Enjoy a graceful and rose-filled day!

  3. It is nice to see you refreshed and posting more often. I also am enjoying the familiar scenes of beauty in your blog heading. I'll have to see if I have any antiqued roses outside too. Point of view is everything after the frost.

  5. Isn't it funny, but I was just thinking about living with grace and there you go and mention it. Your frost touched roses are lovely.
