Roses, who can resist the sweet smell and pure happiness they bring?
When I am grocery shopping I often like to come home with a bunch of flowers and is a good opportunity to get out the camera and take a few photos.
Alice with Roses ~ from an illustrated "Alice in Wonderland"Mabel Lucie Attwell 1879-1964
I have always enjoyed reading this poem from Alice in Wonderland and it is true the phrase ;
the extra special powers that flowers can have on us.There is something about roses, that makes me feel feminine and happy.
Would reside in fancy little houses
And be dressed in shoes and hats and trousers
In a world of my own
All the flowers
Would have very extra special powers
They would sit and talk to me for hours
When I'm lonely in a world of my own
There'd be new birds
Lots of nice and friendly howdy-do birds
Everyone would have a dozen bluebirds
Within that world of my own
I could listen to a babbling brook
And hear a song that I could understand
I keep wishing it could be that way
Because my world would be a wonderland
My dear friends, have a lovely week
