Roses at sunset

I like my neighbor's roses. They are called "Iceberg", and they are a delicate white with glossy green leaves.

But what I also really like is that these roses blush in spatters of pink as they die.

I love to see the pinkness illuminated by the evening sun.

Also, living or dead, they attract bugs, which I always appreciate.

They smell nice, too.

Have you ever noticed the star on the backside of a rose?

These are some of my mini-roses, also nicely illuminated by the last rays of the sun on my porch.
