My girly room embellished with roses I brought from our rented home…
My new antique flower vase. Love it.
Roses, what's not to love about them?
I have planted several roses in my wild garden; but mostly the candy apple-red double Knockout roses. They’re sturdy and very reliable in this type of climate and soil, they grow to almost gigantic proportions in this area and they get awash in vibrant red hues from spring to fall. So I'm trying with these roses first. There are such a variety of plant specimens here that you just have to be careful not to buy the entire nursery. I am enamoured with the Tropical specimens they have here, and I've been delectably selecting some. One in particular—the Hibiscus, had me dreaming with sunshine-filled days and remembrances of a long ago little girl pledging to herself that one day she will grew hibiscus in her garden. Many years had gone by since that day, but my dreams have finally come true. I have bought and planted two exquisite hibiscus shrubs, one in mandarin color and the other one in a bright and supple and divine yellow.
One can never tell how many years will have to elapse before your dreams can become reality, but if you keep that flame alive within your heart and thoughts, eventually they will. Dreams do come true.
One of my favorite quotes ever reminds us: “Focus on the powerful, euphoric, magical, synchronistic, beautiful parts of life... and the Universe will keep giving them to you”. So true!
Hope you have a lovely peaceful evening...
