Last Rose of Summer

We have a green waste pickup in our area starting today, so we spent yesterday morning pruning the roses. I wore a long sleeved jumper and gloves but I still managed two cuts and a bruise.

I couldn't bear to toss these last few flowers, so even deformed as they are, they are in a vase on the kitchen table. It will be a couple of months before I can harvest more.

But in the meantime the camellias are in full bloom.
