Roses, Roses, Roses

 This Floral Art Friday post is in honour of our lovely hostess, LeAnne, who celebrates her birthday today.  
Just wish there was a way to include the fragrance. 
Happy Birthday, LeAnne!

"Won't you come into my garden . . . I want my roses to see you."
~Richard B. Sheridan

"But friendship is the breathing rose with sweets in every fold."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

"A single rose can be my garden, a single friend my world."
~ Leo Buscaglia

"Every rose is an autograph from the hand of God on His world about us.  He has inscribed His thoughts in these marvelous hieroglyphics which sense and science have, these many thousand years, been seeking to understand."
~ Theodore Parker



  1. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    This work of heart brings me to the throne of grace. I am in awe of our Creator, Whom you have shown me through your camera lens on just one of His creations--the rose.

    The pictures, the prose and their pairing through your artistic gift create "church" here on my computer screen. Holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty, heaven and earth are full of Your glory. Glory be to You, Most High!

    And this one of God's people says, "Amen."

    Love you,

    My favorite? The second big one, fully open and bidding all passer-by to come and an "open house".

  2. All I could think of was, "I come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses. . . and the voice I hear falling on my ear. . ." I love that Voice!

    I am so glad for the walk through your rose garden today and meeting such lovely friends. I especially love the one with the dew drops. It speaks to me of a deep soul, one that drinks deeply and feels tenderly. If I could, I'd take that "friend" home with me!

    I'm with Dawn on this one -- I feel I've been to church!

  3. Oh what a beautiful collection of magnificent roses. These are all so lovely and I know LeAnne will love each and every one.

  4. You've captured the beauty of our Father's creation in these photos, Andrea. Truly gorgeous images. Do you ever print your photos?

    1. Lorrie, I do occasionally print them but since going digital I haven't made it a practice to get a hard copy. I would like to do that though with my important people shots, just as another form of backup.
