The rose bushes growing in our local churchyard are looking beautiful just now, so I stopped off on my way past this morning to capture them for posterity before they start to lose their lovely bloom πŸ™‚

I’ve always loved the sweet warm fragrance of old-fashioned roses, so I’m absolutely delighted that so many modern floral perfumes are based on rose – my current favourite is Paul Smith ‘Rose’Β  ❀

Morning-rose

Walking to work each day, even though I live in London, I pass a lot of flowers along the way and sometimes stop to take a picture or two with my phone camera, time permitting. This delicate pale pink rose caught my eye only last week – the silvery morning light is always so much softer than later in the day, and the peaceful beauty of my early morning walks, usually accompanied by birdsong, always sets me up to cope better with whatever life may have in store for me as the hectic day unfolds πŸ™‚
