a rose is a rose

Wild rose shot while on the way home…rose-5693If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.

    • The rose seems to be a variety that grows wild around here, though I imagine it could be an escapee from someone’s garden (though I seem to doubt that.) Thanks for the kind words.


    • Thanks! Caught this one totally on the fly. I was on my way to check on the eagle’s nest with the 70-300 zoom on the camera, but the way the sun was lighting the rose up, I couldn’t resist. This one was straight out of the camera at 300mm (no post-processing involved). The circles at the edges of the leaves are kind of strange though.


  1. A quote that made me fall in love with reading as a 12 year old. I really need to go back and read that captivating book one day and see if it is as captivating at 59 as it was at 12. 😉 Thanks for the sweet memory, and lovely photo to go along with it.


    • You should definitely give it another read. You never know if you’ll feel the same. It’s quite wonderful when you do. Thank you for the kind words.
