Roses in our little terrace garden

"The Earth Laughs in Flowers."
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson  

I've been keeping up with the nearby Monument, AZ Fire, and yesterday, found a desire to sit quietly, enjoy the roses in bloom, birds chirping, and for a bit as winds quieted, a peaceful blue sky instead of the smoky gray we've been seeing.
Here are some of the little rose beauties on our front terrace.


  1. Nice photos of the roses, Liz. Isn't it nice to have something peaceful, living and beautiful to turn to in times of destruction? Between your photos and what Rox has told me, the Huachuca fires sound absolutely horrendous :(!

  2. Love the pics. I may say this wrong, but I always enjoy seeing some of your photography that is like the roses above or the fire pictures.

  3. Sonya, yes it is so nice to have beauty and quiet when all around seems chaos and destruction. The fires have been horrendous. Not much wind today, so maybe some progress...

    Hettie, no you didn't say it wrong. I get it. Thank you.
