I have cut all the summer flowers from the garden and put them in a vase. Whilst doing so, I ponder about last summer and the exuberant flowering of these flowers ....
First rose ‘Marie Pavic’. This summer the shrub has been rarely without flowers. Next I put rose ‘Golden Border’, with pale yellow flowers in the vase. This is always the first in flower. Moreover this rose blooms to November. Then I put Geranium 'Rozanne' in the water. Your pretty blue flowers, is it really over? ......
I realise I can write a poetic blog about these November flowers. I take my camera to make some pictures of this colourful bouquet. Unfortunately, there is too little light! Most pictures are blurry.
Next day is not any better for photographing. Moreover, I promised to visit my mother in law today. As I return in the evening I look at my little bouquet in the kitchen window. Right away I see the freshness has gone. To make things worse, next day I see a few faded flowers.
Well, here I am with my post about "November flowers." Next to me a vase full of wilted roses. Bad timing Hetty!
Yet I am writing this blog. Because I realize these wilted roses symbolize the end of the summer.
I have to face it: it is the end of November and little light. No light, no pictures and certainly no summer flowers!
The last summer roses.
a little blurry, but fresh.
The summer bouquet
A few days later..... summer is over!
