the red rose
June is the month to linger late in a garden. As twilight approaches, nature puts on a delightful show of color, scent, song and flow. Birdsong is strong, fragrance rises and color deepens. It is literally the time to stop and smell the roses. You can really see as daylight transitions into dusk the deeper hue of the rose and all the deeper tones of green. It is a lovely time to appreciate nature’s work as well as our own.
