Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )
Flowers are always associated with love, especially the rose.. the first rose of summer..
“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.” Leo Buscaglia
So far have managed to avoid the severe weather…there are more storms on the horizon, mainly this weekend so I thought I would share some thoughts today.. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”.
In spite of the weather, the flowers in the gardens and backyard are starting to make their presence known… spreading beauty, fragrance and love… a white rose “a new beginning”…
“You don’t love the person you can live with, you love the person you cannot live without”…
And of course the red rose… the symbol of love among the roses..
“True love doesn’t happen right away; it’s an ever-growing process. It develops after you’ve gone through many ups and downs, when you’ve suffered together, cried together, laughed together, loved together.” (Ricardo Montalban)..
Of course, other flowers a associated with love also, even the pond flowers..
“Just because you feel someone does not love you as much as they should, does not mean they don’t give you all the love they have”..
And there is the purple clematis….
“If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t, they never were.” (Richard Bach)
And there is the pink clematis…
“Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.” (Felix Adler)
Soooooooo, from the gardens of the path least traveled, a bouquet of love..
A bouquet of flowers from my garden,
Their beauty need not be told,
Their fragrance is soothing and lovely
A pleasant scent for one to behold.
They remind me of you, my dear friend
Whose beauty from within you do share,
Sharing sunshine, understanding and laughter
Sowing the seeds of love and happiness in the air.
This bouquet was picked for you
For coming into my world, my dear friend,
For giving sunshine, laughter, love and happiness
For which I know will never end.

Well, I had better close now…. Life is calling, or is it the lawn mower?.. 🙂 but I shall return again one day, fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
“Love knows no bounds or time, love is the spirit of the heart, love is the life support of hope, love is the force behind compassion, love is the foundation for true friendships, relationships….without love, life is barren and cold and has no meaning”…. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
