Spring Is Here

Waal, actually spring is now one month old, but nevertheless
this post is about roses. My mother's favourite flower was a
rose and I must off inherited her love of roses.

One of her favourite places was New Farm Park.

It is here that a huge number of roses have been planted and
so today I drove to the park to take and share with you these
photos. I took quite a number of photos so I am going
to include them all here. Be it as it may if you enjoy looking
at photos of roses you are in for a treat.
Unfortunately I do not know the names of the roses.

"There is nothing no more beautiful than a rose"

















Poem:



A Vision



Nothing is more beautiful than a rose,

Except the warmth that fills my heart,

When you're in my vision.


Blooming from within

No feeling could make me want to give so much of myself

If only for a smile.

G'day Warren ~ Well that was nice, and what a beautiful place it must be. Thanks for sharing the roses with us. I think most people like roses
although a lot complain about the thorns. Small price t pay for their beauty and fragrance. Thanks for the items you sent by e-mail. I guess you still miss your Mum. Take care Warren Regards, Merle.

Hi Warren,Lovely photos of the roses, I used to have about a hundred roses growing in Brisbane, I had a rose garden also at The Palms, you may recall. I still have a few here,a couple in the ground and some in large pots. I love roses, I think also because of my Mother . I have been to weddings in this park. Cheers Margaret

Hi Warren,

What a lovely post ! I LOVE roses and have posted a lot of my rose pictures on my post. At one time I had over one hundred roses- but many have died over this hot summer (I haven't felt up to gardening!)

I have even written poems of roses. :)

Thanks! I enjoyed this!
