Here are some photos I would love to share with you.

“ November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest Until next spring.”
– Elizabeth Coatsworth
“No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds -
- Thomas Hood,
“November always seemed to me the Norway of the year.”
- Emily Dickinson
Added some poems from the season from this page

I admire my pink roses in the vase.
I was thinking how sad! You do not live forever.
Then I took one and placed it behind my ear,
making a sacrifice, because I wanted it to blossom for you all
to watch here on the web
and then capture a smile too you forever.
Much love Annabelle

“Some people grumble that roses have thorns;
I am grateful that thorns have roses.”

“Feeling at peace, however fragilely,
made it easy to slip into the visionary end of the dark-sight.
The rose shadows said that they loved the sun,
but that they also loved the dark,
where their roots grew through the lightless mystery of the earth.
The roses said:
You do not have to choose. ”
Robin McKinley, Sunshine
“They are not long, the days of wine and roses. Out of a misty dream,
our path emerges for a while, then closes, within a dream.”
Ernest Dowson, The Poems and Prose of Ernest Dowson
Mixed media art by Annabellerockz Red roses are so bright, deep colors in your sight.
Yellow roses are the color of the sun and lavender roses are so special I find them so much fun.
Orange roses are captivating So many shades of them.
White roses twinkle in your eyes, bringing out your smiles.
Pink roses, are so sweet they sweep you off your feet, smelling so gorgeous oh what a treat.
