Unexpected


I stopped at a local gas station the other day
and just happened to notice these red roses growing next to their service door.
Wow! Beauty can be found in the most unexpected places.

PicMonkey recently added a few more photo framing options to their site.
(Thanks, Claudia, for letting me know!) 
These scallops create a look similar to the postage stamp I used before.
Wouldn't you agree? 
I still have to go to FotoFlexer to get the font I want, though.

  3. That would be pretty....instead of just an old greasy, smelly gas station.

  8. You know the mature roses that I have had more than a year are prolific this year. The rabbits have eaten all the newly planted ones. Just filled up the other day and I didn't see anything quite this nice! Your frames are darling...smiles..Renee

  14. STUNNING!! Years ago a local bank had a hedge of the most gorgeous lilacs that was at the back of their parking lot. I always loved seeing them in the spring on my banking runs -- the bank changed hands and the new ownership took the hedge out and now there is just a cider-block wall to look at. Such a shame.

    Blessings!

  19. I love that, when I see something amazing in an odd location. Especially when of the sweet smelling flower variety.
    The color is stunning, great photo!

  24. I just love roses, anywhere they pop up. How fun. Don't you just love the roses that grow and grow without having to fuss over them and then be disappointed?
    Happy summer.
