Today's Flower #9 - Roses

"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.”
- Dale Carnegie quotes (American lecturer, author, 1888-1955)

Hi!
I found your blog, and find your roses fantastic!
I love roses my self, and I have almost 100 in my garden.
Autumn has arrived in Norway now, so I only have the pictures left - until next summer!
We have a cottage in the mountains, and we went there for autumn-holiday, - snow! - and...a bear was shot....
Have a nice day.
Tone
