My patio rose on the kitchen window sill in yesterday afternoon's Autumn light. This rose is unusual in that it produces flowers with different shades of colour, from a deeper apricot pink (see image January 27, 2015) to this golden beauty. If I leave the flowers on the plant they will fade to white.
Note the damage to my insect screen from the native Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.
The same rose in this morning's soft Autumn light. The temperature earlier today was cool and fresh but now the day has warmed, it is very hot in the sun, around 30 degrees Celsius. Summer days are reluctant to leave.
