Last Rose of Summer

IMG_3904

We enjoyed a warm Fall, but now the cold air is moving in and what had escaped the earlier cool nights is now getting frosted. I went out today to see what had survived and found the last rose of summer still bright red for one last day. Some of the others around it were wilting from the frost we had last night.

Frosty air arrives

Last rose of summer still smiles

Tomorrow she’ll die

Leaves shiver // aged overnight

Winter’s knocking on the door

  1. I took a few photos of the last roses of summer, too- now a little bit of snow has covered the plants and the weather has officially shifted! But just 1-2 weeks ago, there were still a couple of roses.
