Many years ago we bought this wrought iron lantern. My wife placed it on the edge of our patio and cleared a small space to plant a number of tiny rose bushes. Over the years the roses have grown to form what appears to be a single, large rose bush. When it’s in bloom (which it clearly isn’t at the moment) it has many small, red roses. Of course the lantern has also weathered, but we can live with the worn, rusted look. On the day I took this picture the light from the setting sun was particularly appealing.

Taken with a Vivitar 35ES.
