Last Rose Of Summer "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." ~William Arthur Ward~ How many times have I been grateful for something or someone and not said a simple, Thank You? Well world here I am to say it wholeheartedly, Thank You! For our wonderful friends who are leaving today, we had a wonderful time. Thanks, we so enjoyed your company, lots of laughs and great conversation. To all my followers and readers who have left kind and encouraging comments, Thank You! Coming upon 20.000 page views, I am truly overwhelmed that anyone reads what I have to say! A sincere, Thank You! Thanks to all the flowers, landscape and seascape that Mother Nature, Herself, has provided me thru my instrument of capture. There is a briskness in the air this morning a hint of fall impending. The children are back to school soon and the summer has passed far to quickly. The last roses of the season are trying hard to keep their regal bloom. Summer what a wonderful and glorious season, a season for all seasons! Posted to: Textures: Scratch Magic, Canvasback.
