Post 400 and the last rose of summer
Holy cow, I've been doing this little blog since May 2007 and this is my 400th post. I started blogging to simply write about things that amused, amazed and sometimes even frustrated me. When I look back over the years, I find it's a rich reference of my life's plotting. I refer to often for the first garden blooms and the last, how Beatons is progressing and how the girls have grown.
A nice history source, perhaps for some future geneaologist (once I export the files and put on a server in my datacenter.....for posterity)
Anyway....began cleaning the garden beds last weekend and put the roses to bed for the winter. This beauty was one of two roses still in full bloom. And the smell is just divine. The cranberry glass vase was my great great grandmother's (Nanny).
