It is Blooming Friday the world over . . . I offer today the last of my roses. Blushing pink and mauve they stand against the cold chill of night and rain. Tender soft petals sigh and soon will die. A short life as is this post ... for my previous one is so long and dear to me ... maybe you can take a peek into my forest. Be careful for the hill is steep. Then be sure to visit the gracious Queen of roses Katarina to see other surprising blooms. Enjoy the haunting holiday weekend.
