Last week the roses in the garden looked so pretty; I picked a few for the house.
I casually arranged them with a few sprigs of 'Mystic Spires Blue' salvia and several snips of rosemary in a vase John made back in his college days.
The soft fragrance of roses and herbs was detectable when sitting nearby. And just a glance in their direction made me feel happy inside. That's the effect flowers have on me and why I want my garden to be filled with them.
Now that they've faded, it's time to replace them—more roses, perhaps. I just checked the garden and they are still looking pretty good.
