HBW – Summer’s Last Rose

What does HBW mean? HBW = Happy Bokeh Wednesday – a term in the Flickr community.

What is Bokeh? According to Wikipedia, Bokeh (derived from Japanese bokeaji ボケ味, “blur”) is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.

The last bud on this rose bush.

There should be enough time to bloom before the first hard frost – historically, October 4-10 in this part of Wisconsin.
