First of the Month

This is the final First of the Month for this year, post #12!  I think we'll keep playing.  I you want to change your theme at any time, feel free to do so.  Next month, would be a great time to have new beginnings.

Here is a shot of my small back yard with the Sally Holmes climbing rose, hanging over half of it.

And, here is a shot of a single stem.  These clusters make this rose one of my favorites.

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,

When you sign in with mr. linky, be sure you're linking your 1st of the month post; not your blog address.


  1. You still have greenery and roses. This morning we had frost and shivers.

  2. Is there anything more beautiful than a climbing rose? Many years ago I had a climbing Peace that tumbled all over the ugly chain link fence. I can see why you love this rose--that blush color, and those lush clusters of blooms.

    I have really enjoy this meme and it has really helped me by seeing others' photos and helping me to focus on one subject. I'll enjoy participating next year. Thanks, Jan!

  3. Gorgeous rose, and as a city dweller, your yard is nice a big. Nice to still have roses at this time of year.

  4. Beautiful Jan! I'm going to keep playing, next year I'll do where I'm at. Thanks for doing this meme.
