Hotel California

We lost only one plant in the fire: our Sago Palm. It was never happy in the spot it was in–didn’t like the water from our sprinklers and overflow from the neighbor’s. So I had a new rosebush planted. Would you believe it’s called “Hotel California”?


I haven’t had a yellow rose in a long time and had forgotten how cheery they can be.

We just got back last night after a whirlwind in Virginia where my stepdaughter got married! Sooo nice seeing family, friends and fall colors again. I kind of miss that East Coast sensibility, but I got over it when the temp dropped into the 30s. 🙂

Hope your week’s going well so far.

  2. The bottom petals are so nicely lit, they seem to be glowing.
    We haven’t had too much in the way of fall colors here yet. Hopefully the leaves will start turning soon. My favorite time of year. 🙂

    • My favorite time back East too, Jackie. It’s kind of good the leaves weren’t really turning that much because I had no time to photograph them. I took exactly one photo of the foliage and that was at the wedding!

    Such an ethereal looking picture. The color is lovely.

  4. I’m really happy to have a yellow rose for a change. Too much red and pink before.
