First of the Month

Happy Fourth of July this weekend.
This is my Fourth of July Rose, in my backyard.  It' has beautiful roses, but dangerous thorns!

The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month. I'll open the linky each month on the 1st, and leave it open for a week or so, to give everyone a chance to post. . (Please link back to this blog, thanks.)

Go take more photos,

  2. I miss my roses -- but I don't think I'm going to replace them this year. Going to see what we can do with the new shade in our yard from the neighbors trees. I finally planted the seeds you sent me three years ago. Do you remember? Probably the worst spring on record to do that -- Our spring has been "winter warmed over" and now summer is "spring"

    I always enjoy yours flowers.

  3. I believeI am having some computer problems. Can't get linky to take me to the other contributors.

  4. That is a very beautiful rose! I love that it has such a festive name!


  5. Beautiful colors in this beautiful flower.

  6. How wonderful to have a rose for the holiday! It's a lovely one.

  7. This looks like one of the rose varietis that just keeps going on and on with very little drama--lovely.

    I'm very glad you're keeping this meme going, Jan. Ordering a new camera tomorrow. Hoping my photography will improve.

  8. Jan, sorry to post late, but we didn't have Internet for a week! Beautiful flower. I've tried to grow roses for years, but haven't succeeded. My neighbor, however, has beautiful ones! go figure...

  9. Your green thumb has been working overtime! Beautiful colour.
