As Valentine’s Day is but a breathless day or two away,
I thought I’d gather a few of my roses for you.
Some fun with Instagram
I zoomed these roses through a shop window in Paris. I think the glass had a beautiful effect on them, don’t you?
It is enough of honor for one lifetime
To have known you better than the rest have known
The shadows and colours of your voice,
Your will, immutable and still as stone.
The shy heart so lonely and so gay,
The sad laughter and the pride of pride,
The tenderness, the depth of tenderness
Rich as the earth, and wide as heaven is wide.
From my garden.
K, I’m ready for spring.
Do you have any special plans for this romantic day that, let’s admit, has become just a tad commercialized ?
Remember way back before political correctness when as kids in primary school we were allowed to send Valentine’s cards to whomever we wished and not necessarily the entire class, girls & boys both??
I DO. Oh, The Horror.
I will have dinner out with my husband of 25 years (this April. He would have sent me a Valentine in class) and then we’ll rush home to watch the opening season of “Survivor!”
I know. Can you believe how hot that is?!
Thank you to all you sweethearts that have voted for me in the final round of the HOMIES .
And have a beautiful Carnation & Baby’s Breath-free Valentine’s Day!
