Poem about a Rose

ApricotRose100_5092

This Painting I painted is called ‘Apricot Rose’ 

So I thought today it may be nice to put a poem on about a ‘Rose’.

When you think about it the Rose is one of the most favourite of flowers.  I don’t seem to have much success in growing them here because we get a lot of salt from the ocean and the soil is very sandy.  Yes I have tried growing them in pots but they have not grown very well, probably because I either give them too much water or maybe not enough.  Then in the hot weather the Sun comes in sometimes over 40 deg. Celsius and shrivels them up. 

So I am better off to paint them or to write a poem about them.

Here is a Poem for today with a picture of the largest Rose I have painted.

As you can see I have not copied it very well but the message is still there to read.

I Hope you have a lovely day today and can share the recipe and the poem with your friends and family.
