More roses~Nature Notes~121511

It rained here in the desert Monday night and since I was still sick with my flu, I slept in Tuesday morning until about 8:00 a.m.   That's LATE for someone like me, who usually gets up at 4:30 am!!!  But, by 8:00, the rain had stopped and I wanted to drive to our nearby park, set up my tripod, and take some photos of the roses with raindrops on them.  So I did!  I was dismayed to see that many roses have been pulled off and thrown on the ground carelessly by people who frequent the park.  Some have been bent...sigh...But, at least for now, there are many, many flowers and buds still on the bushes and I'll continue to visit them as often as I can.  I appreciate their beauty, their grace, and their color!  Nature Notes for December 15, 2011.  All roses are at the Palm Desert civic center park. Don't you love their color and variety?  To visit Nature Notes, please go to:

Feel better! I don't know why people have to be so thoughtless and destructive but I am happy there were still some left to photograph... rest up Cheryl Ann!!!

I, too, can't understand why people have to be destructive. Great photos and do hope you are now better and have had a Merry Christmas
