Respite Wednesday



Of all the flowers,


Methinks a rose the best.


~~ William Shakespeare ~~










I agree.

Gorgeous. My roses aren't blooming yet... patience is not my best virtue.

So pretty! Your garden pictures always seem to be about a month ahead of where my garden is...something to look forward to.

Those roses are so beautiful, but I'm being redundant. That is what we all say. Do they all smell like roses?

Are they all in your garden?

When I look at roses I fall in love with roses, when I look at Daisies I fall in love with daisies. Doen't God love us. "It is God's good pleasure to give us the Kingdom" I think of flowers as glimpses of Heaven.

Wow, what colors, what beauties. And yesterday I was all excited over my first rose bloom, a large single deep red beauty.

Amen!
I have been meaning to tell you just how much I enjoy coming here. The photos, your words, are all so beautiful and really make my day much lighter. Thank you for sharing and I hope that foot of yours is healing. I've been 'down' close to a year and I can relate to your situation! Take care...;p

I am drinking my tea and while brewing it this morning I pulled my clear glass teapot off the shelf and thought of your roses. I don't have has many roses as you I'm sure and mine aren't blooming yet.

I have a basket of dried rose petals. I pull off the petals after a bit and keep smelling the fragrance. Have you added rose petals to your tea pot? I do in the summer and like seeing them in the clear pot.

What garden things do you add to tea? ... that is assuming you do.

hi Debbie,
Oh how your roses make me long for mine to bloom. I simply adore roses.Yours are so beautiful. There is no way to pick a favorite.
I hope you heal up soon.
Hugs,
June
