wild rose

from my heart to yours, i wish you all a happy solstice!

* * *

Nature does love me! She consoles me and makes promises to me. On such days I am invulnerable.  Outwardly smiling, inwardly laughing more freely, a song in my soul, a twittering whistle on my lips...

~ Paul Klee  diaries, 1890

  2. You know LH, I love wild roses so much that I saw one growing in an empty lot that was going to have a warehouse built on it. I dug it up and took it home and have planted and dug that rose up with every move. The fragrance is amazing and hypnotic! It has grown quite high and I have to cut it back every year but it always has a cascade of wonderfully scented roses! I would plant them all over my yard against the fence and out buildings if my husband would let me!

  3. beautiful! you know I thought those were your words as I started to read them. It wasn't until I saw the credit. So perfect.

    roses are out here in sunny spots and just coming into bloom in others.

    wishing you a sunny solstice! I am painting outside right now and plan to head to the garden this afternoon.

  15. Happy solstice to you too. It's our Winter solstice here in the land down under. I love this time of year, lots of fog and mists hanging over the hills. The trees covered in millions of precious water drops, sparkling like diamonds. Wild roses are beautiful. Our herb group collect the hips every year to make the restorative rose hip syrup. Have a lovely day. Marg, ox
