I'm so pretty

I guess if anything can be excused for being narcissistic, it would be roses. Still it was a surprise to find this Nearly Wild bloom staring lovingly into the gazing ball.


Mirror, mirror
in the ground,
who's the fairest
rose around?

Indeed, roses ARE beautiful...always, everywhere and anytime! I love them!

When I first saw the picture I though maybe you had put the rose there. It is so much better to read that the rose got caught in the act. Maybe this rose has a bit of 'narcissus' in it.

Beautiful photos! That rose reminds me of the wild roses in my native state of N.Dak.

Hi There,
Beautiful picture, the sky reflected in the gazing ball is truly beautiful.

Should report we are really having an influx of hummingbirds, have two feeders out now and Dad fills them both everyother day----guess we'll have to get another one.

That is a great picture. The rose must be feeling quite lovely because it certainly looks pretty.

Lovely rose and I am glad to see someone else likes gazing balls :).

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous! They are one of my favorites, mine are in their full glory right now.

She was just putting on a little blush and powdering her nose, eh?
