The Last Rose of Summer RevisitedSunday, November 12, 2017

I wrote about my last rose of summer here. Two days later after I place the semi-closed rose in a little vase in the kitchen I noticed it had opened and it still had that refreshing scent.
The bloom itself is half the size of the big summer ones but its beauty is still savoured as rain pelts in our little Kitsilano garden.
We have installed a bird feeder and the first bird to notice was a lovely stellar blue jay. But there is a little bird (I have no idea what it is) who also indulges. As I write this the little bird is in my Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Ayesha’ by my office window. I may now have new friend as he seems to appear only when I am at my computer.
