Last Shabby Chic Summer Rose

The last bloom of summer. 
Summer is almost over and my pink rose bush blossomed this past week with a bunch
of lovely flowers. My roses are going to enjoy fall as much as I am, as they
have been scorched by the sun all summer. I expect they will enjoy the cloudy skies
and cooler temperatures here in Southern California.  

This rose always looks perfectly shabby chic as it ages.

Shabby chic is like life. Soooo tempting in its humanness. said...

Ah the last blooms of summer. I love fall, but it makes me sad too. Shorter days and less sun. But the layers are ready to come out to play.

M'y roses are starting to suffer the season here on the desert, they are browning before they even bloom. Yet I find a special beauty in the last of the summer roses.
Yours are still as beautiful as can be, your hands of care have produced enough beauty here to last the winter months until next spring my dear.

Looking forward to all you inspire and create through the holidays.
Thank you sweet friend for taking the time to share with me at my place all your beautiful thoughts.

Take care, let this new week inspire much.

Such beautiful colors. We got one or two shabby stragglers here. They have been a bit neglected, I'm afraid. Enjoy your cooler days dear!
