On my previous post, I used only the photos I’d taken of one rose-bush. There were other roses I had photographed, and I’d like to share some of them with you today.
I’d also like to dedicate today’s post to my two teen sons.
Boundaries can be a very good thing – out of respect for my sons’ requests – I will not feature pictures of their handsome faces.
At our old place, garden boundaries were crucial if I expected to enjoy any rose blooms. Deer traversed regularly through our property.
My oldest son and I were sitting on the front porch when a doe and newly born fawn emerged from the woods. The baby was precariously wobbly while mother was cleaning it off.
That was a special mother and son moment… for all four of us!
Soon, as this speckled fawn grew up, our fencing would be the only thing between it and my roses. I have learned that deer love roses as much as I do.
A few years after this birth, my youngest son handed me a special little card he had made. It said he was praying that my new rose garden, I was building, would be beautiful!
It did turn out much better than I had anticipated, but not as beautiful as that card and the blue eyes that accompanied it.
I don’t have that particular rose garden anymore; but I have the card and the dear son who made it.
My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Proverbs 6:20
Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck. Proverbs 6:21
When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. Proverbs 6:22
Thankful for sons and roses,
