Smell The Roses

I’ve been spring cleaning and freshening up around the house! What about you? Spring just makes me want to clear all the clutter and start fresh again! I hope your enjoying the season! We are planning a getaway! Yes! A getaway! Ha-ha! Our work schedule is coming to a close and we plan to take some time to smell the roses. πŸ™‚

When traveling we try to visit art galleries and gardens and the Biltmore Estate’s in Asheville, NC did not disappoint.

Last year we visited the Tyler Rose Garden in Tyler, TX and it was heaven! It’s a public 14 acre park and more than 38,000 rose bushes. No fees to get in, they accept donations. It’s well worth the visit!

I love taking pictures of flowers after a rainfall. Our Cinco De Mayo and Julia Child roses are in full bloom.

I love every color of roses and these red roses are no exception!

Sometimes I can’t resist a dozen yellow roses!

“The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns: the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.” – Kahlil Gibran
