Friday at the Rose Garden

As usual now on Friday I visit the Community Rose Garden after picking up or dropping off books at the library.

Tonight I will share a few pictures I took today.

The first one was from behind with not much detail.

We had some hot weather earlier in the week. In this picture you can see the wilted edge of the petal that was on the surface of the bud during the heat of the day.

Tomorrow I must do yard work. I have been putting it off for several weeks now and I have a small forest starting to sprout in my backyard.

What are your weekend plans?
