Omondieu’s post about roses had me singing in agreement when I read it yesterday. She says:
and these are my roses. this my summer’s love.
and it’s been about learning.
and it’s been about growing.
it’s been about taking the risk to blossom.
and i don’t ever want to stop…
My roses bring me so much joy right now–I try to spend time every day in my rosegarden and feeling the excitement and magic of bursting buds.
Photo is of a mini rosebush in the center area of my garden. In the background you can see Ned the elephant–he’s a favorite with our smaller garden friends.
PS: I am very weary today. Some of my new meds are having strange side effects, including sleeplessness and difficulty breathing. Sigh. I’d love to hear what adventures y’all have planned for your long weekend–drop me a line in the comments and let me know!
