Monday Morning Flowers: Raindrops on Roses

Good Monday Morning!

We had some rainy weather here yesterday, but I managed to go out between showers and get you some roses.

Hope you enjoy them and I hope you have a wonderful week!






Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

I will trade you some of your rain for some of our snow? Huh? Friend? No? Hmmm....

Thank you for sharing your flowers Betty!

Our flowers aren't to that size just yet, but they sure are trying! Do you have any gardenias? I like gardenias. :)

Love Mondays here with all the pretty flowers. Roses are my very favorite but they don't grow well here where I live. But they will be blooming here really soon. Have a great week yourself.

Well done Betty--thanks for braving the elements. We had rain here yesterday too, but it cleared late afternoon so that we caught a couple hours of sun. No complaints here.

Monday is not monday without your flowers Betty. Thank you! and love the quote. Reminds me that my conversation yesterday with the first bumble bee of the season was not odd after all!

Fantastic pictures of the roses. It reminds me that Boris and I must return to the laboratory (pronounced La-bore-ah-tore-e) at once and attend to my ongoing experiments to create a blue rose.

I'll be rich...but Boris won't get jack-diddley of a raise because he makes a terrible cup of tea.
