Cranford Roses

I vaguely  recall the pilot film for “The Waltons”  in which Patricia Neal’s character expressed surprise at being brought roses by her husband in the middle of a snowstorm at Christmas time.

Well on this last day of December we have yet to see any snow in these parts. Indeed the freakishly warm weather has induced trees to blossom and the roses have still not gone dormant.

Seeing all these  roses stubbornly hanging on reminded me of a visit to the Cranford Rose Garden last June.Friends know that roses are my favorite and I took lots of pictures while I had the opportunity.

This image represents my attempt to capture in a design the lush,romantic,abundant mood brought about in that particular garden space.
