the rose clippers



I'm not kidding . ..
this is my most favorite time of year. . .
and I probably won't change my mind.


The garden is yielding more rose buds than I know what to do with. . .
and the best part of that is. .


when dinner guests are ready to leave.  ..


I take my clippers with me as we walk down the sidewalk .. .


and everyone takes home some roses.

all for now. . .
