Back Yard Throw Aways

I was in the back yard and decided to bring in some of the roses. They were about to go bad. Some of them already had. I put them together in a vase. They look semi ok on my kitchen table. They sure do smell nice.

Hi JC.
Beautiful roses can almost smell them.

Have a good Sunday.

They are beautiful even if they only last one more day.

They still look lovely, like a big soft, sweet smelling bed, all ready to get into.

I like to pluck the petals off roses that are somewhat *iffy* and float them in bowls....

Beautiful! I love the colors. I wish I had a garden to pick flowers from. It would be so much cheaper.

These roses are so pretty, almost past their prime, and petals and scent (I can imagine) still lovely.
The fleeting beauty of a rose is something poets can best describe.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
