Late Bloomers

I love the end of summer.

It always seems as if there are a handful of rosa rugosas that have enough “oomph!” at the end of the season to put out juuuust a few more blossoms.


And because they are so few and far between, I think I enjoy them more now than I do all summer long.

A Little Cloudy Day Relish

Some people just “get through” the cloudy days…

As they await the next sunny one.

I relish the cloudy days, and the magic they bring with them.

When colors seem more intense, yet at the same time softer, almost dreamlike.


When it’s quieter, too.

Even among the birds, ordinarily so full of a million things to chatter about.


It’s when every breeze seems to be whispering something as it moves over the sand-sprinkled rosehips…


And upward through the pines.

Something akin to a secret.


A secret that I relish.  ❤

The Beach Roses of Cape Cod

The rosa rugosas, our beach roses here on the Cape…

ForestBeachLoop848-BlogAre in full bloom now in the dunes along the beaches. Brilliant in hot pink and white, they accent the landscape like trims on a dazzling Derby chapeau!

ForestBeachCGBldg4-B-BlogFrom afar or up close, they are a sight to behold…
