Recently I was delivering Rose Tea Jelly to the Rose Garden Shop at Washington Park in Portland, Oregon. It was a lovely summer morning with the feel of sunshine in the air. I couldn't help taking my camera along to capture some of the beautiful roses in the rose gardens. The picture in the center reminded me of "Stairway to Heaven". It takes you into the glorious fragrances and beauty of the morning. Oh Take Joy in celebrating the beauty of the morning and roses.
A friend recently sent me the following quote:
"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns;
I am thankful that thorns have roses."
