Gather ye roses...

Lots of rain and sunshine colluded to create this Hansa rose bush bursting with blossoms.  There are so many that the branches droop gracefully under the weight.  The air is full of scent and the buzzing of the bumblebees as they stagger around from flower to flower almost drunk with the pollen.  There was even a hummingbird who was drawn in from who knows where by the intoxicating aroma. This is one of the reasons that I really love to garden.  Sometimes the world can be an ugly place, but the garden reminds us of the beauty and diversity all around us.

Watercolor and micron pen.
