Rose Brave

During my last trip home to the Okanagan I found a number of roses still bravely blooming in Penticton’s public rose garden. It was very overcast with occasional misty rain and a very sharp wind.

Some were faring better than others, but I was surprised at how resilient they were.

Given how hard-hit British Columbia has been by heat waves, forest fires, floods and landslides, all in less than five months, we may all need to become much more resilient than we have been.

Scarlet Foliage

Red is my favourite colour, so maybe that’s one reason why I like autumn so much; my favourite hue is on vibrant display everywhere!

The colour of energy and life and passion and adventure, red’s long wavelength is difficult for the visual cortex to ignore. That’s why it’s also the colour of stop signs and fire vehicles.

Red always says, hey, hey, look at me! And in the autumn, that exhortation is also a reminder that we had better enjoy our leafy canopy before it’s gone.

Happy Saturday. 🙂
