White Weekend




I have only simple stories to tell. And this one begins with our latest summer roses as inspiration.






Sometimes it's hard to grasp just how hardy these delicate beauties are. Yet here they are. Seeming only to await our return home to bloom. We have had only small bouquets in groups of two or three to bring in from the garden. But that simply means successive days of fresh cheer one after the other.





The shifting light means hunting down the best ledges to stage a photo. Our weekends are full, and so familiar objects fill in for a quick shoot.   





The brimming days can pass in large number before much is altered at the end of this room. The unchanging displays as steady as wallpaper.





The same textures and colors are at home in any season. 





























I will miss these home grown petals when they are finally gone! As beautiful as they can be, hot house blooms feel more formal to me in the colder months ahead.










Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Jacqueline

To my fellow lover-of-white-roses, I agree that the hot house blooms are more formal, but give me home grown or hot house grown - white roses rock my world!

Wish I had white roses in our garden. I'll have to think about that next spring. Yours are beautiful. Sally

Hi Jacquline,

Your roses are beautiful and so precious as they start to fade. We are finally getting some cooler temps beginning tonight and I am hoping are New Dawn roses on the arbor will bloom one more time before they too are done. Dianne

Your white roses are beautiful! I chopped out my whote rose bush, it wasn't producing many blooms. I have a few pink roses that are very hardy but the more delicate roses have not been good for my yard. It is nice to have fresh cut roses. so pretty and delicate in your photos.

Oh Jacqueline, such a petty post!
Thank you for sharing~ (I like your 'familiar' objects : )
Yes, we'll miss or home grown flowers till sometime next year;
but I have a feeling you will find some 'outdoor things' to
add to the beauty of your posts in the colder months ahead!
Appreciate your blog (and you of course!) so much~ Karen O
