“Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage we did not take, towards the door we never opened, into the rose garden.” ― T.S. Eliot

Cherry Creek, Nevada

Yellow Pioneer Roses were first planted here in the yard of The Teacherage (teachers’ quarters) in Cherry Creek, Nevada – USA.

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    Oh so beautiful!! Arvy referred me to you and I am looking forward to seeing more of your work!! :)))

    Beautiful, Arla!!! A fav for me! I love the contrast of the yellow roses against that fence – it’s beautiful!

  • Thanks, Ann! I like that combination, too; delicate and rough. :)

    I don’t have any family in NV, however, it’s a small world and they could be distant relatives – one never knows!! If you see them, ask them if they could have descended from Georgia. Also, I’m glad that Arvy did point you my way – I love Nevada and your art is beautiful!! :))))

  • You’re too kind, Polly!

    My former sister-in-law was (and probably still is) married to a Peacock; I haven’t seen any of them since @ 1984. I believe the family came from Utah before settling in NV – and that’s about all I know about them. ;)

    My favourite colour rose! This is gorgeous, a fave for me!! thanks..

  • Mine, too, Kat!

    My grandfather had these in his yard, and their fragrance always brings back happy memories of my childhood. These have a unique honey-like scent.
