Roses

Full blooms and buds alike. I love my roses.

Brown spots don't lessen the beauty in my eyes. Kansas wind tends to beat them against the deck and bruise the buds.

Even the clippings of a spent rose are a lovely site.

When that Kansas wind blows the clipped blooms to the deck floor and scatters them into a work of Mother Nature's art who am I to argue?


Then I toss them all into a basket with the trimming shears and there is more beauty at least in my eyes.

I love roses too - but the deer have methodically eaten every single bud (and I have ALOT of rose bushes.) Just as more buds begin to form - they come back in the wee hours of the morning and devour them.
