Public gardens and parks are dressed in their finest to welcome all their many visitors. And, among these beautiful places are rose gardens. They are always clipped and snipped to perfection and have such a grand variety of magnificent roses with exquisite blooms… simply out of this world. Just waiting for you to come and visit.
“There’s nothing like the rose. The lily has an air, and the snowdrop a grace, and the sweet-pea a way, and the heart’s ease a face, ~ yet there’s nothing like the rose when she blows.” ~ Christina G. Rossetti
“Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle may not grow.” ~ Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.” ~ Richard Brinsley Sheridan
“It was June and the world smelled of roses.” ~ Maud Hart Lovelace
“June was a month of sunflowers like golden lion manes and bumble bees buzzing around restlessly. Honeysuckle is everywhere and the sky is a cerulean blue like paint on a canvas. Roses flutter like the wings of birds whilst the birds fly up in the sky like paper planes.” ~ unknown
Dear friends, I thank you for spending a little time with me this morning. I do hope you have found a lovely image or perhaps a few words which speak to you ~ something to tuck away in your heart.
Wishing you and yours a beautiful day.
“May thy cup be filled with summer’s blessings and bloom in thy heart a little garden that brings thee great joy and everlasting kindness, wherever thy feet may wander.” ~ Freya Turrill
