The last rose of summer

Summer is long gone, but look what I found outside.

Pink-edged petals and golden heart. I'm going to miss this rose when it finally fades.

’Tis the last rose of summer
Left blooming alone.
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.
Thomas Moore

As well as being the title of songs by groups as diverse as Celtic Woman and Judas Priest, The Last Rose of Summer is also an imprint of the Wild Rose Press, for heroes and heroines over 40.

And that concludes my random thought of the day, inspired by a rose.

How lovely and special to find that still in bloom. :)

Like the first dandelion of spring, except smelling better. And possibly not having a reputation as a weed.
