JUST ABOVE SUNSET – as a commentary site – has gone dark, at least for now. For now there’s just occasional photography, and each Saturday that would be botanical photography.
Absolutely Fabulous (40 images): The buttery-yellow floribunda rose here is the award-winning Julia Child rose, bred by the Tom Carruth in 2004. The late Julia Child personally chose this floribunda rose to bear her name. In the UK the rose was renamed and marketed as the Absolutely Fabulous rose, after the television show, but it’s the same rose, blooming everywhere here is Los Angeles, because it’s drought-resistant and has no problem with the extreme heat here, and it seems to be smog-resistant too. And it blooms year-round. Yes, it is absolutely fabulous, and Julia has friends. Those other roses are fabulous too. ~ Saturday, August 27, 2022
Bright Spots (30 images): Here in Los Angeles the drought only gets worse. The place is dry and dusty, everything is the color of concrete now, but there are bright spots. ~ Saturday, August 27, 2022
