Today's Flowers: Lush and Beautiful at the Burgwin-Wright House

From Jul 8, 2011
For a long time, Adella and I had been unsuccessful in visiting the Burgwin-Wright House in Wilmington, North Carolina. Whenever we were in town, it was the wrong day or the wrong hour for that historic site. This year, though, we did our homework, and paid a visit on the right day. We were a few minutes late for one tour, so we waited an hour in the gardens, where we and our cameras got pretty wet. This was a good thing because things around here have been pretty dry--and you don't get lush gardens with gorgeous pomegranate trees without a few showers now and again.

I think roses at every stage of their coming and going are very beautiful. This faded blossom was no exception.

  9. I agree with you about the beauty in the faded blossom! I have some peonies that look much more dried out than that rose. I can't bear to throw them out yet!
