The roses are waning
Their blossoms are fewer
And petals litter the ground
But this week there was still enough
Of the knock-out roses
To fill the old blue and white pitcher on the dining room table
And the Blaze Rose that I planted 25 years ago
and creeps up the side of the house
Provided enough blossoms
to fill a blue and white pitcher
in the breakfast room.
Before all the petals are gone, a lot of blooms will be picked
to be made into this year's potpourri.
There is nothing like a hint of rose fragrance inside the house
especially in winter.
There is something about red roses in blue and white pitchers.
You are so right! There is something beautiful about red roses in a blue and white pitcher!
Your roses are beautiful ~
