A blogger that I follow requested more rose photos from my garden. I am happy to do it.
I love roses and that's what inspired me to do this blog. This "Sentimental" rose of mine likes
to bloom in our cooler winter in Southern California with a little rain and sunshine.
Here it is a day later falling apart in a very shabby chic way. We're expecting rain this
I turned this rose upside down and around to get these photos. When it blooms it
never looks the same. It's a chameleon rose, if there is such a thing.
"....If I Should Die Before I Wake..."
When I was three years old my mother would put me to bed and
say a prayer before she tucked me in. In the prayer were these words
"If I should die before I wake". I asked my mother what it felt like to
die and she did not know. I remember asking her to come back after
she died and tell me what it was like. She said she would. She passed
away twelve years ago and I am still waiting to hear from her.
