Last Rose of Summer - reaching new heights

I took this picture from my workspace/table through the screen, thus the hazy look. Notice the dewy spider web. I've been enjoying roses all summer out the window. I keep thinking that soon it will be the "last rose of summer" Now it is almost October and there are still two lovely red roses. The spider web is gone. You can just see the half curtain on the window.

However, the funny thing is the view of the rose bush from outside. (The reaching new heights part)

The roses really look nicer from the inside through the window. But they sure are reaching up. My husband is trying to figure out how to trim the bush so it will be good for next year. If it is the usual height of a rose bush, I'll really miss my view however.

So, on to October and fall having enjoyed the last rose of summer.

B and


  1. Aren't we supposed to prune rose bushes anyway? That way, you'll get to enjoy the roses from your window at least part of the time.

  2. I clicked on the top pic to enlarge it and I swear I got goose bumps when I saw the spider web. They are a work of art but e-e-e-wwww! I love the roses though!
