"When at last I took the time to look into the heart of a
flower, it opened up a whole new world; a world where
every country walk would be an adventure, where every
garden would become an enchanted one."
PRINCESS GRACE OF MONACO
It's Monday morning and here I am still trying to finish a post I worked on last week but couldn't get done. Today is too beautiful to be indoors fiddling with words on a computer screen. Setting the post aside for the moment, instead I want to show you who blossomed open this weekend.
Every season the joy rises up to catch sight of her newly forming buds. And then when the first rose blooms open, well, we're in seventh heaven. We never tire of her loveliness... I give you Miss Peace Rose.
"The woman who for the first time picks a small
flower so that she can have it near her while she
works has taken a step toward joy in life."
my feminine version of HERMAN HESSE's saying
Remembering my dear Dad this Father's Day with great affection
and gratitude. He would have loved the Peace Rose.
Wishing you ease and joy this day,
