Rock Rose

I sense that sometimes even Mother Nature is too distracted with other things to bother with ironing...

Rock Rose (Cistus creticus)

I hope everyone has time to play this weekend, rather than simply doing chores!

My second favorite household chore is ironing.
My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.

Laugh a lot, and when you're older, all your wrinkles will be in the right places.

  1. Hahaha Love that quote from Erma!
    You had me first....... I really thought ironing was your 2nd favorite chore.........
    I have been ironing today and it is the worst I know. Garantued to bring my mood on point zero.
    I have a lot to do before our holiday, but tonight I made a large mandala for my niece, so I guess I had time (made time) to play also

    Hope you have a nice weekend!
    Lovely flowers! Looks like they need to be ironed :)

  2. Very lovely rose, and the color is beautiful!

  3. The paper thin petals are so exquisite.
    Love the shot of color!

  4. Hi Leslie: Many thanks for adding my mouse drawing to your blog! I so appreciate it!! I've just enjoyed your exquisite photographs.......and the quote from Erma which made me laugh out loud!!!

  5. Great photo! I have never seen a rock rose before. Except for the color, the bloom is a bit like the papery delicacy of an alpine poppy, I suppose?

  6. You got me there - had to look up an alpine poppy. I think I have seen them before, and I would agree that they are probably rather similar. Very delicate, almost flimsy petals.


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I truly enjoy hearing from you!
