The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase; if you pursue happiness you’ll never find it.

    Oh, that is a beautiful rose… am guessing it’s an english rose? (saw one in an English garden in Calcutta – so big, and full of petals…)

    • CherryPie says:

      I am not sure what sort it is. I always forget to look at the plant labels and I always get asked what the roses are. I shall try to do better next time :-)

    What a lovely idea to have a “Thought for the Week” :)

    I agree with Eve, it’s a beautiful rose you’ve chosen Cherry Pie. For some reason I can’t grow roses yet everything else seems to do very well.

    • CherryPie says:

      Thank you :-) There are exactly 52 thoughts they come from my web page. When I get to the end I think I will carry on with the thoughts because I find them fun to discuss with other people.

    Lovely photo, Cherie. Did you take it?
    That rose is a beautiful colour.

    • CherryPie says:

      Thank You :-) I take nearly all the photos on my blog. You can hover over the pic and if says taken by KT on Flickr and not followed by a copyright message it is a pic I took :-)

    With you on that one, Cherie – and I, too, love the rose.

  6. jameshigham says:

    English rose, yes.

    A great thought of the week… and one that I think is true :-)

    It depends a lot on what one calls happiness. Sometimes, the travelling is as good as the arriving.

    Your photos are always so wonderful. I could practically smell that rose on Flick’r. Thank you!

  11. Mmm – I think I can smell it too. Beautiful rose indeed.
    Wise words to not be taken lightly.
