Rose Passion


One of the things I haven't been doing much of lately is reading. After going to the farmer's market yesterday which is held next to our local library, I went in and scored a variety of books. Today I've been an armchair traveler via The Sonnet Lover by Carol Goodman. It's a romantic mystery, lush with description (especially rose themes), and taking place between New York City and Italy. Academics, poets, Shakespeare, and the film industry all woven deftly together for an absorbing loose yourself read.

Inspired I grabbed a few shots of the roses that are always growing here in California. A glass of chilled Rose, some nibbles, a good book and gentle sunny warm weather. What more can one ask of a Sunday.....

Some rose themed music, Sting, "Desert Rose":
