The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.

    Wonderful photo, wonderful rose:) Greetings

  2. That is one heck of a rose, and a great photo.

    I’m not sure about timeless and timelessness though… Still thinking about it… It may take me some time…

      My special rose :-) Due to the weather it is a month late in flowering this year. The blooms are just starting to show :-)

      Timeless and timelessness is most definitely a concept to ponder on…

    That rose is incredible! Is that rose one you planted, Cherie? if so, can you tell me what it is called?

    I love the quote. I need to be reminded of that regularly given how I often squander my days, ungrateful. :)

    That is a beautiful photo you took-whether it’s your rose or not.

      It is a patio rose called strawberries & cream. Here is the story of when and why I bought it:

      Due to the weather it is flowering one month late this year.

        Thanks for the link. :) That rose reminded me of a candy cane but I love the name strawberries and cream better. I have arose story. A former reader and current friend who is a horticulturist had a bright red rose she thought dead when it got struck by lightening and split down the middle of it’s main branch. The next spring it flowered first and the biggest ,brightest rose in her garden despite all what it had to overcome to survive-she told me it was my rose- Uber Rose-and sent me a picture. I was very touched!

        Now that’s love eh? :)
