Red, red rose


And fare thee well, my only Luve
And fare thee well, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.

That's a stunning photo...truly beautiful. It looks like Old Man Winter has come to visit you....seems too early for him to stay! However, I'm feeling the need to prepare for him here as well. Predictions are for a long, cold winter. (Which never really bothers me anyway!) -Mary
