No one promised me a rose garden so I planted one myself. They were all chosen for their scent because a rose should smell like a rose. The pink rose bush was a gift from my younger daughter and it is very prolific. I have had many a bouquet from it. The yellow one starts out a deep orange and turns into sunlight in colour.

Of course Crete is a treasure trove of history, as is all of Greece. But in Crete we have the spectacular ruins of Knossos, which are in the process of restoration.
This is a 8″ x 10″ water colour on sketching paper done in 2018. I was working in the garden today and took out all the old growth and harvested the tomatoes. I found a plant of jalapeno peppers. It was a good year for the garden.
It is Thanksgiving and we’ve had our fill of turkey. The weather is so mild one must go out and do some out door chores.
