"Won't you come into the garden?
I would like my roses to see you"
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
"Hurry up and take pictures of the roses before the wind throws their petals off. They look beautiful right now!" That was what my mother told me this weekend. I thought it was adorable how important it was for her that I photograph them. The pictures I include are not those I took recently (haven’t finished the roll, plus I’m sure you'll notice the date) but I had so many from past years that I wanted to share. I tried removing the date but I couldn't figure it out and my patience and time ran out. I like to think that the date is the d.o.l (date of life) of the flowers..hehe! Anyhow, this proves how devoted I have been in photographing my Mom's flowers for many years.
Mami, you're just as beautiful as the flowers.
"If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I'd be picking roses for a lifetime."
"Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers."
Veronica A. Shoffstall
"The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart."
"To know someone with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts unexpressed...
that can make this life a garden..."
"There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling."
