Spring is Here!



"If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment."~Georgia O'Keefe

I love arriving home and seeing my front flower bed [which only contains roses -- beautiful!] all in bloom. The colors and fragrances just make me smile. I do love spring!

Love the flowers, but man that fat baby on the side of your blog, he's tooo too cute, I just want to hug him and squeeze him (and even though I know it's not his name) and I'd like to call him George! He's too adorable. HOw on earth do you stay away from him?

what lovely roses! I am reminded of that Family Circus cartoon G'ma and G'pa Mason had up: "I wish roses didn't have thorns!" "I'm glad thorns have roses!"

do you let Maya pick roses when she comes over to visit?

very beautiful...I, too, appreciate the great beauty in God's handiwork. You know what the desert is like Jan, so I appreciate any color out there!

What a beautiful garden and home! We woke up to an extra foot of snow today. Do you think roses grow in Wyoming? I must find out!!
