Blue Sky Today


At 9 AM in Los Angeles, this was the color of the sky – much different than the previous days. As some parts of Southern California are still engulfed in fire, many areas are thankfully under control.

My heart goes out to all those people who have been affected by the fires. It was reassuring to see the outpouring of goodness, care, and concern from far and wide.

Although this rose is absolutely beautiful, luminous and bright, it was given a most unfortuate name.
This is Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose.

Today’s photograph and post were insipred by a red rose blooming in Vienna, Austria posted by Merisi.

  1. Thank you too, Maryann. All of my roses run from yellow to apricot to pink, but this one just called to me so I planted it. The wildfire rose doesn’t really match my garden, but it is so pretty. I do not like the name 🙁

  2. Thank you for the lovely surprise!
    I was reading the post and ready to tell you how absolutely gorgeous the rose and the sky look, and then all of a sudden I saw my name. 😉
    I am so glad the sky has cleared in your parts and hope the best for everyone who has been suffering under and from these horrific fires.

  3. Thank you Marie – and it was great to go visit Chicago this past week.

    Thanks Merisi – and glad I could surprise you. My heart goes out to those who lost their homes. Thanks for your comment.
