Roses for Mosaic Monday

While visiting the Distillery District in Toronto with my Photo Club I wandered into a store called the
Vintage Gardener. I was glad I was walking and carrying camera equipment,
 or this gardener would have gleefully parted with coin for some of the garden decor pieces. 


 My neighbor's roses climb the fieldstone wall.
They will not let me work; I stand and stare.
Too far away to breathe their sweet incense
Yet hypnotized, I drink the beauty there.
A pageantry of summer at its best;
A roadside altar where the soul may rest. 

~ Josepha Murray Emms ~

I linking with Mary at Little Red House
for Mosaic Monday.
Stop by and visit.

Have a wonderful week.

I could dive into those roses! I've been to the Distillery District several times - there's a theatre there and I've seen several plays.
Thank you for your prayers - it will be a long recovery and we are grateful for the support.

A stunning mosaic! I'd hang that one on my wall. Just lovely and the poem is perfect (although I am almost able to conjure up the scent just by looking at your pictures).

What a wonderful poem and beautiful images to go along with it.One must never go anywhere with out even a point and snap camera in ones purse. LOL! I carry one in my purse because my canon is too large to fit.LOL! Maybe I just need a larger purse?
