Anything Goes Blog Hop

Stop and Smell the Roses

 I love roses. They are a passion of mine.
I have a variety growing throughout our yard with each
being more beautiful than the one before. 
Sometimes we pass up the most beautiful things that are right in front of our eyes.

The Red Rose has always been a symbol of love and affection.

" Instead of complaining that the rosebush is full of thorns, 
be happy that the thorn bush has roses."

" Even if love is full of thorns, I'd still embrace it for I know that in between those thorns, 
there is a rose that's worth all the pain."

" True love is not without pain, like that of thorns in your side. 
Yet love is like the rose in full bloom, beautiful and full of life."

" You cannot pluck roses without fear of thorns, 
Nor enjoy a fair wife without danger of thorns."
(Ben Franklin)

I wanted to show you a couple that have just came into bloom.
