The proverbial “Last Rose of Summer” ~ Grand Dame still hanging on . . . .

And that wraps up this week’s Six on Saturday for me. I’d better snip off those rose blooms before tonight’s freeze and make a centerpiece arrangement.


Celebrating just over fifty years of holy matrimony, I am blessed to be a mother of two and grandmother of seven. Much of my writing speaks to the culture and tradition of the Deep South, where I spent the first thirty-five years of my life before relocating to the Pacific Northwest. As a poet and essayist, I’ve published both online and in print media. I launched this INVITATION TO THE GARDEN blog the summer of 2017 on I look forward to hearing your stories, too!
