From My Yard

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

The first rose to bloom!

When I go out into the countryside and see the sun and the green and everything flowering, I say to myself Yes indeed, all that belongs to me! ~Henri Rousseau

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for him there. ~George Bernard Shaw

Very lovely Tracy. We don't have roses blooming in our garden yet. They usually open in late May and early June.

You world is sure a pretty one.
