Robert Herrick 1591-1674-Gather Ye Rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying. The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, The higher he’s a-getting, The sooner will his race be run, And nearer he’s to setting.
Oh my, I could not have put it any better. Yesterday as I wandered about my surroundings capturing just a few last shots of the flower blooms before they turn to seed, this quote swirled through my mind. I am not ready to relinquish summer just yet! I can see that many are already embracing Fall. I am not there yet.
Living in the North it takes many of our flowers much longer to bloom.
And there life span is way too short.
Tell me, are you yearning for Fall already? Or are you, like me, hoping Summer will not give in so soon to Fall’s clutches?
To see one way that I like to display my roses view here.
