TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Roses for Valentine's Day

Early this morning while the Prof made breakfast,
I went out into the garden and picked a few roses.



He would have bought me a shop full, but I preferred my
own deliciously perfumed variety.



Each one a beauty in its own right and together, a veritable
feast.

    - Cheers Gisela.

    As the waves of perfume, heliotrope, rose,
    Float in the garden when no wind blows,
    Come to us, go from us, whence no one knows;

    So the old tunes float in my mind,
    And go from me leaving no trace behind,
    Like fragrance borne on the hush of the wind.
    - Sara Teasdale, Old Tunes

  10. Oh what beautiful flowers Arija dearest. I am so happy you still have roses to pick. The Viking bought me a bouquet of red roses and exotic violet flowers. He and my sone went out again today to get Valentine's Day presents for the girls. I got mine yesterday - two round brushes. Yay!


    Happy Valentine's Day!
    Happy Chinese New Year!

  24. Beautiful! Sounds like a very tender and loving Valentine's, and that sends a warmth through my soul. Bouquets are much more satisfying when they are home grown, I totally agree.
