The pleasure of our gardens, part 18

Mr. Lincoln rose / photographed on June 15 at 7:10 a.m. 

In the beauty of our garden,

There are many roses of different shapes and colors.

Like dear friends, each has a personality.

And, a story worth sharing.

Their names include:

All That Jazz, Mr. Lincoln, Queen Elizabeth and Angel Face.

Each comes alive during both sunshine and following rain.

Each is special: full of joy, love and happiness.

Although each is with us for only a brief time,

We are determined to make the most of our time together.

The memories of our roses live on in our minds.

And, thankfully, through my photographs.
