Andy Rooney once said “Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.” This insightful quote just gave me a reason to show off one of my favorite climbers, Rose New Dawn. But don't let this image fool you. ‘New Dawn’ showers you with profuse blossoms, giving the gardener an infinite supply of cut Roses for your vases. I just admired the way this one Rose stood proudly amongst all the inner growth.
So as we get nearer to the official start of summer and the many trips that are in the works, I’ll leave you with these words from Terry Pratchett. “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
Hope you continue to come back here with ‘new eyes and extra colors’.
Enjoy what’s left of spring and as always send any questions, thoughts or comments.
