Day 57

The flowers are quickly starting to fade, but this red
rose always hangs in there and gives me flowers until
the first hard frost.  One year I had roses clear up until
December - what a treat!

The container for the rose is the bottom of an old salt
shaker.  I think it made a nice little vase - what do you think?

I think the sharp, hard edges of that salt shaker make a nice contrast to the softness of that rose, Claire. Nice painting.

I hate when the flowers fade, always makes me feel a little sad. This little rose looks sad too, but it still makes me smile. The red is gorgeous. Love the vase idea too!
