A Yellow Rose



As Autumn has my garden in her grasp
I'm making the most of the last blooms.
My lovely roses are bravely offering up
the odd flower here and there.
In a couple of weeks I will prune them
and say Merci and Au Revoir until next Spring!



Rose brought me this lovely yellow bloom
on our last embroidery day.
I can't remember the name
but I want to order it to plant in Spring.
 If you would like to know the name too
let me know in your comment
and I will be in touch.


I'm joining Gemma for  
Monday Mellow Mondays
and
Macro Monday
and 
Isabelle at Le Chateau des Fleurs



to my dear friends on the other side of the world
I'm really enjoying seeing your Spring gardens
the beautiful lilacs just take my breath away
sadly, they don't grow where I live..

why is it always the unattainable
that we desire most?



Take care and be kind to each other 

Merci à bientôt

Shane

Dearest Shane,
Poetic post... and we too cannot grow lilacs here because of the heat and often drought.

Right now my roses are in full bloom and I am so enjoying them. I got some lovely hanging baskets for Mother's day and I will enjoy them too. Your post was very nice. Have a blessed day. Madeline

I love your photos and the yellow roses drying up. Have a lovely week.

Why don't they grow there? Is the climate unsuited for them? It is good that we have friends around the globe who can share their current joys with us whether it be the coziness of a fire or the beauty of a rose.

Dear Shane, this is a very romantic post. The way you played with the light on the book and roses made the photo dreamy. A beautiful way to say goodbye to Spring and hello to Autumn.

Jeanie said...

I love seeing how the climate manifests in other parts of the world. We're in spring now and your beautiful rose is making me smile.

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Shane,

The yellow rose is so pretty and love the photographs you have taken.
Yes, the weather is starting to get a little cooler - wandering around outside I noticed a hyacinth coming up in a pot - seems early.
Happy week
hugs
Carolyn

I call this simple, beautiful, elegance...the Rose has so much to it and at the end of it's cycle, still so worthy to be shared~

Donna said...

Looks like a Julia Child yellow rose to me.....Beautiful shot!

My lilacs did bloom beautifully and are now finished for the season. On to the roses beginning to bloom. I have a yellow rose called the Poet that blooms throughout the summer starting now and is usually the last to stop blooming. It is amazing. Love seeing your yellow, my favorite color.

Vicki Boster said...

Dearest Shane- such a beautiful color-- I think yellow in any kind of bloom is stunning. I hope you are having a wonderful fall----- and yes-- I am beyond overjoyed that we are finally having Spring!

A lovely way to celebrate the beauty of the rose. The first rose of Summer is out in our late Spring garden and it's a yellow one with a gorgeous perfume.
