A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 18

Here’s the 18th  installment of “A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday.” If you’d like, you can view all the earlier Sunday flower images/posts on this page.

I took this photo of a rose that was still holding on in the middle of October, long after she should have been. There was a just a simple beauty in the rose, and I loved the way the rose leaned to the left, almost as if the sun was not strong enough to have her reaching upward.

Just a simple flower holding on when the season for them is long gone.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
