"I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday sweet and fragrant, between its leaves."
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island
These images are from the rose garden at Ritter Park in Huntington, W.Va. As autumn quickly approaches, the roses are beginning to fade away but will return in the spring to delight visitors with their grand color and fragrant blooms.
I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of the summer season and taking time to smell the roses!
