Roses of Life

This is for Twilight and Mystic Rose, who obviously love roses. Twilight has been asking me to post the pic of my roses.

From bottom to top is a progression from all the endless possibilities and potential every living thing starts with, to the full blossom, and then just a minute past its peak until it's all downhill decay from there.

The first stage fascinates and captivates me! Your whole story is encapsulated in that bud and it is yet to unfold and reveal what is in store for you. It's like the feeling I get when I look into a young child's face or when you look wistfully at a picture of yourself as a kid, a time where one is yet relatively unmarked by life's events. A pure innocence of what lies ahead stares back at you..... and there are times when you just want to jump into the picture to re-capture the lively and carefree spirit, and simplicity of youth.

Perhaps at times,we all want to rewind the tape a little and become safely encased once again, waiting for our moment to emerge into a slightly different rose.

I love roses. I wish didn't have such a black thumb so I could actually grow some.

Grizz: It's just luck that I have some nice ones. Many get aphids and you are supposed to dust them so I guess I should!

Barbara: Me too, except that many don't smell like the ones I remember. The pink ones here are a wild type and smell gorgeous, the red - not at all. My favs are yellow like I had in my wedding bouquet and on the cake!

Chase: Thanks! That's interesting...what are they supposed to do for your face and how do you get them in he face wash? Is it rose oil or crushed petals?

Puts me in mind of a quote I heard recently:
"Some are dismayed that roses have thorns but I am just thankful that thorns have roses"
Wish I could attribute this.

Thanks! I love this one. Puts a new positive spin on the loss of beauty.

Hi MOI! I like these words... "there are times when you just want to jump into the picture to re-capture the lively and carefree spirit, and simplicity of youth."

Thank for so much for the mention and the lovely roses.

I, too, am a rose lover. Any flower that looks that beautiful and smells that wonderfully is hard to beat.

I had to move mine around a bit to find the best place for them. They are on the side of the house, and have become a little wild. I like them like that!
