Beauty Is In The Eye....

This is a once beautiful cluster of Eden climbing roses that live along side a banister by my patio. Somehow they have succeeded in keeping every petal that existed on the original blooms and they have all turned to a lovely tea-stained color that exhibits just how far behind I am in my deadheading! Oddly enough, they have been there for a couple weeks and show no signs of further deterioration and I may just leave them for the summer and call them "antiqued".

I rather like that look.

I use to dry a lot of roses. Those ones are very nice. You could cut them and hang them. But leaving them there is fun too(-:
