September Squares / 9: Fading in Pink

Some beautifully scented, fading old roses, seen and smelt yesterday at the Walled Garden in Sunbury on Thames. I just love the gentle colours, pink suffused with various other tones:

  1. Glorious, Sue! I love those colours too. Never been to Sunbury-on-Thames. 😦 😦 Happy Sunday! 🙂 🙂

  2. The last time I was in Sunbury was a hot afternoon in the summer, around 1978. We hired a motor boat with two friends, and took a picnic. I joked that we were recreating Manet’s painting Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, but the two ladies kept their clothes on that occasion. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Pleased to see you found some sun in Sunbury. A lovely example of faded pink, Sue

  4. Pretty roses. I am so surprised to see so many roses in September, once they were all done and dusted by mid July.

  5. Luscious in the gentle fading. Thank you for this bouquet, Sue. It smells blissful 🙂

  6. Lovely roses presented so lovingly on a Sunday morning!

  7. Oh I so want to smell these!

  8. These are beautiful Sue. My brother lives just a few minutes from the garden, but the only time I walked through it, the roses weren’t out.

  9. Definitely very gentle colour. Hope they smell lovely. I cannot pass a rosebush without sticking my nose into the roses….such beautiful fragrances.

  10. Gorgeous, I hope it is scented!

    • Sue

      It was, beautifully so! They have quite a few old rose varieties with scent in that garden, as well as their modern, devoid-of-fragrance cousins….

  11. I saw the roses very differently after I read your words – in a good way – the different colors stood out more as did the age – but at first I just thought this was a curled variety and the pink was nice – hmm

    • Sue

      Good! We should always read the words!!

      • yes- but sometimes I look and then read.

        and actually – when folks come to my blog and do “not” read – I try to show grace – especially if it is the end of a few pictures – try to keep in mind some folks visit many blogs and they might just be in a mode that is skimming – but I know not everyone feels that way

      • Sue

        Oh, I know – we are all different….but if a visitor never comments, but likes ALL the time, I do get a little irritated, especially if I comment on their site….

      • and actually… good for you for even noticing the likes- I hate to admit it – but I do not always notice likes – but I still love them and I am trying to make sure I peek at them more (I know a few bloggers who really keep track)

        but the reason I do not mind the “likes” is because I guess that some bloggers are not as interactive. I also know how robotic it can be to leave comments too often whereas a like can be a frequent splash of check in – do you know what I mean?
