A floral tribute

I would send you all armfulls of scented roses if I could.









I took all the photos in the walled rose garden at Cockington Court not far from home. Ah I wish I could take you there. As you walk through the gate the scent of hundreds of roses and the bright colours assault your senses in the most delightful way.

Except this last sweetly scented rose
which has lived in our own garden since the day we buried our son.

  1. Beautiful. I love the last one especially, despite it's sad reason. I hope it blooms beautifully for years to come.
