Ah, yes…the season is like your sweet rose. Winding down here as well.
Such a beautiful picture. I’ve grown flowers on my balcony this summer (it’s the first year I’ve had either a balcony or a garden in years and years of rented accommodation) and I don’t think I’ve ever been as aware as the winding down of the season. I’m not one to take much solace in warm cups of soup and roaring fires either! Roll on next summer :)
