Today’s Simple Nature Sketch

Although the wild roses have disappeared since early summer, balls of color have appeared to take their place. Red-orange rose hips scatter themselves where layers of pink petals resided. Their hue mimics the autumn season. Even the rose-bush leaves are beginning to turn a deep red.

On my daily walk, I pass by large patches of rosebushes. In early summer, I am in heaven as I view their gorgeous color and soft petals. They are a major distraction and often interrupt my steady walking pace.

Today when I passed by, a sea of tiny balls swayed in the autumn breeze. They glistened in the late afternoon sun, making them even more appealing. Gingerly I picked my subject,  being careful of the tiny thorns that still existed. Tucked between my fingers, I daydreamed about the sea of pink that would once again take over the space next summer.

Warmly,

Debbie
