FOTD – Rose Garden🌹 & Reflections

“It’s the time that you spent on your rose that makes your rose so important…People have forgotten this truth, but you mustn’t forget it. You become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.” – Dale Carnegie

“True friendship is like a rose, we don’t realize its beauty until it fades.” – Anonymous

“Real beauty is in the fragility of your petals. A rose that never wilts isn’t a rose at all.” – Crystal Woods

“Just remember, during the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, that there’s a seed that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes a rose.” – Bette Midler

“The rose is fairest when it is budding new, and hope is brightest when it dawns from fears.” – Sir Walter Scott

“A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.” – William Carlos Williams

“If the rose puzzled its mind over the question how it grew, it would not have been the miracle that it is.” – J. B. Yeats

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln

    The Saint-Exupéry quote is one of my favorites. My mother cultivated a backyard full of different types/colors of roses and as a child it was a special place for me. Our name, Rosenfeld, means field of roses.

      What a beautiful memory and a lovely namesake! Do you want to have a garden of your own some day? My grandfather and grandmother named my mother and her siblings after different types of flowers.

        I love that they are named for flowers! Unfortunately I don’t have the gift of a green thumb, and I live at too high an altitude. I appreciate wildflowers. 🙂
