Raining wild rose petals

When Belle and I were out for our run this morning we came across a sight fit for an outdoor wedding: wild rose petals floating down off the breakwater and on to the beach.

The next tide will probably absorb them but they sure looked pretty out here in bright contrast to the grey cobble beach. If you look closely on the right you can see a teeny-tiny Belle patiently waiting (again) for me to take photos.

I love my salty dog!

Oh my! I LOVE those pink wild roses! We have a huge bush in front of our cottage on 1st beach. I can't be there this year, so this picture will work great to lift my spirits! Thanks!
