When I applied mine heart to know wisdom... then I beheld all the works of God...
Ecclesiastes 8:16-17

The Miniature Roses I am holding, I bought yesterday. I thought they made a good matching color to the John Cabot climbing roses on the trellis, Three out of five roses bushes that we planted from last year were eaten by rabbits...

I found this angle to be a little difficult to do as I wanted to get both types of roses in the
portrait closer without cutting too much off the sides of the frame but yet not get so far back that the miniature roses didn't show up clearly. The John Cabot roses are mostly blooming toward the bottom section of the stand. I did this one over a few times to get it right.

    You did an excellent job on this self portrait, as you do on all of them : ). The miniature roses do match your John Cabot roses, that and the stand make an excellent setting for your roses!
