One lavender rose ~

This lovely lavender colored rose, is all by itself in the garden. This home is for sale and there isn't anyone tending to the once beautiful garden of roses . . . I have a wonderful view of this garden from my window. I couldn't resist capturing it's beauty in spite of the heat and lack of water . . . it's still so pretty and very much alive . . . even though no one is home. 


  1. As if it is saying, "I will be pretty to spite you, you have the nerve leaving me here to fend for myself!".

    It is a lovely rose.

  2. Exactly, Carol. This home is across the street . . . where my hose will not reach. I have been tempted to just take a jug of water over and drench the bush. I may do that this evening . . . it's just not fair!
