Flowers From Our Yard: Moonstone Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The temperatures here on the Plateau dropped to near freezing a couple of times last week, but our roses are still trying to beautify our home. This picture of Moonstone was taken this past Friday (October 21) afternoon. Moonstone is one of our newer roses, but we have come to love this white rose with the pink edges.

This is beautiful. I love this kind of shot. I don't know what has happened on blogger, but my blog has disappeared for now. I'm working on trying to get it back and hopefully that will happen soon and I can start posting my images from my trip to New England. Meanwhile I'll just enjoy my blogger friends' posts.

There is a very old mystery book called "The Moonstone", I think it may be by Wilkie Collins. And I have heard of the gem, but a moonstone rose!!! Gosh, you still have these this late in the season! Well, there are a few around here, not many. This one is lovely and has such a delicate shade!
