You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet: and it would be
Like sleeping and yet waking, all at once.

~ George Eliot ~


  1. I love roses as well and must agree with Mr. Eliot

  4. oh I love them too...and want so badly to learn how to paint them..and adorn things and areas with their loveliness...Did you take this picture ? It is beautiful--I love the new header.

  5. Love your new header. I need to change mine one of these days. Raining roses would be lovely, soft, and smell so good.

  6. Thanks for the new header comments. This is a picture I took of a lampshade at Paula's antique shop.
