Last Bloom

This is the last bloom on my rose plants this winter. Altho, it's been in the seventies and eighties
the past few weeks, the nights are cold and getting colder. I don't think I'll see anymore blooms
and I'll be cutting them back soon.

Here are some photos of bees I took around my home this winter.

After The Rain

These photos were taken a week and a half before Christmas the day after
it rained. My roses held their own.

Here they are all dried out.

 I will send down showers in season,
 there will be showers of blessing."
Ezekiel 34:26 NIV

I love Castles

I'm a romantic that likes castles and Valentine's Day. This is
 one of my favorite times of year with all the hearts and flowers
for sale everywhere.  
Chambord Castle, France

This is my favorite castle photo. I bought this sometime ago at  Ethan Allen
I think I've given you a peek at it in the past but nothing close up like this.

Chambord Castle, France

A close-up of the castle.

Here it is pictured with it's unusual but pretty frame.

And this is what is looks like hanging
in my dining room.
