True love grows by sacrifice and the more thoroughly the soul rejects natural satisfaction the stronger and more detached its tenderness becomes.

    For me true love is no sacrifice…it comes to me as natural. Maybe I get the quote wrong. To me love is give more than you take and that is easy for me…
    I do LOVE the picture, so beautiful, so wonderful colours.

    Bit late to this, but Cherry has with that image given a very good reason for anyone at this time of year to visit the magnificent Rhododendron gardens that this country has to offer.
    There is something about them that is just breathtaking, and as well as the above Bodnant, Exbury, The Savill Gardens, Glendoick, Trenwainton, Leornardslee, Bowood and many others should be if near visited in the coming month, it is one of the great sights of spring.
