We have a few rose bushes that have just started to flower. One of my brothers picked a few for decoration on our table. The red petals around the vase were from an older rose that I dismantled and spread out. I really like the soft colour of the yellow Peace Rose petals!

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~ Dale Carnegie
