last rose of summer (?) with meadow beauty pods

This may not be the very last rose of summer, but it's close. And so pretty on this cold morning! I dropped it into a vase that already had Virginia meadow beauty seed pods in it, then added a piece of curly willow (that's the vine sort of surrounding the rose). LOVE the tiny meadow beauty seed pods. Hope you can see that they are shaped like vases? Meadow beauty used to grow in all the ditches around Ashland, but it's getting harder and harder to find as more people mow their ditches. I've got a little patch of it blooming in my garden, where I guard it with my life.
