All Over My House

Roses. All over my house.

One of those things that make me really, really happy. 

In this harvest, I collected 50 roses from my 18 varied rose bushes.  

I put them all in vases, and scattered them in every room, and even made some to give away.

I am excited thinking of at least 3 more months of this. 

I love growing organic veggies, but roses are in a category alone. They just take my breath away. 

A timely gift from nature coming so closely around Mother's Day and the anniversary of Joey's death. Surely a God who can create these lovely things can also do everything else He promises. It's so clear and simple. Love and comfort come in all kinds of ways.

Gorgeous!!! We had nearly 30 rose bushes in our garden in Newbury Park. Magnificent! The first blooms of the year were always the best! I see you are growing my favorite - Double Delight!!! I can smell the sweet, spicy fragrance from your photos.

May the sweet fragrance of God sweep over your heart! Blessings!
