310/366: roses ready for the cup

With Melbourne Cup Day tomorrow, much is made of the roses which have been tended carefully to provide their best blooms for the highlight of the Victorian Racing Carnival. It’s a tradition: the second Tuesday in November, where the nation stops for the two mile or 3200 metre race.

The roses in my garden do not get such singular attention, and yet they continue to surprise me with their beauty, year in and year out.
