Possibly the last old fashioned pink climbing rose of this year was too beautiful to leave out in the wind and rain, especially after I realised how much it resembled a rose engraving featured in "Treasury of Garden Writing" a favourite book from the Royal Horticultural Society.
The Senior Partner offered to photograph the rose and book together so, I created a pretty vignette on a table in the dining room.
Since getting the new ipad a few months ago the SP has been learning several new photography techniques, he also took the photograph that I'm using as my new blog header image using the ipad.
He used something called PhotoToaster for the altered image above.
Roses by George Eliot.
You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
