Give me such joy

What's left of my back yard roses ...

I live in the woods
I do not take care of them at all
I do walk around and talk to them
I tell them how nice they smell
How pretty they are
I trim them and try to kill the bugs

I need to do better
I say that every year

I'm sad to see them go

I do enjoy them

My wild roses that give me such joy

Such pretty roses! You are lucky that there are still a few left!

Fin said...

Those are so pretty... wonder if they're tasty?

Jo said...

They are beautiful, all my flowers are gone now.

Those are so very lovely! You are so lucky that they grow so well on their own. Our flowers are here for only a short time!

They are very pretty. the cooler weather is perking mine up though I just have red and pink. they are starting to bloom again.

Fin ~ I do bring them in and put them in a vase on the kitchen table. Riley loves to sniff them. Al has tried to eat a few petals. Jasmine doesn't care at all. Ashton sits pretty by them and will sniff after a while.

When I used to let the Purr Gang outside, I would pick them up to sniff the roses.

They are gorgeous! We like roses too and mom says she's going to buy a mini rose bush to put in our littlebeans flower garden, which she LOVES tending to. mom even bought her a little watering can which she loves to do! We have an award for you today! :o)

Those are beautiful. Mine are devoured by Japanese beetles every year. I've decided to give up on them.

JC - I really want to thank you for the prayer posted on your site which led so many to post condolences at my blog for Tim.

JC said...

Anna ~ I thought it was the thing to do .. I like that poem and try to send it to my friends when they have lost a beloved fur member. I hope each day gets better for you.

Tristan and Crikey said...

Thanks for your suggestion on the pee problem! Our Mom will try those plug-ins, for sure:)

Your roses are gorgeous. Thankyou for putting our blog in your header. I just can't get enough of looking at the beautiful little souls:)

They are very pretty. We don't have much luck with roses, it's too shady in our "garden".

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.
