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.

Beauty of a Rose

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.

 If you have any children in the family they may love to make some Jam Tarts.  Or if you make them yourself they are a real treat for Afternoon Tea.

Don’t be Fearful

This is a beautiful hanging Basket of a Coleus Plant.

I thought you may like to see this lovely hanging basket that I had a few years ago.  It goes to show that you can do something different instead of just putting this particular plant in a pot or in the ground.  It seemed to love being up high and even produced some flowers as you can see in the photo.

Yes we did have a drip going in – to water it, the drip was on a timer with other hanging baskets at the time.  You can of course water by hand with one of those watering cans with a long spout. 

Don’t be fearful – it is a lovely hobby to experiment with your plants – then to enjoy showing them off to your friends.  Lots of cuttings can be taken from this plant and they will grow quite easily for you

Hope you can have some fun planting a new plant soon and watching it grow and flourish, even a small one in a pot.

Bible Verse:  Psalm: 27 verse 1   The Lord is my light and my Salvation – whom shall I fear?

So today let us not be fearful of things or people.  Let us not be fearful to try new things even just to plant that new plant or to cook something new for dinner  –  maybe some Jam Tarts as in the above recipe – they are delicious with the coconut on them.

Children can have fun making them with your help – so don’t be fearful to help your child to learn to cook.

I know they make a big mess but if they cook it (or help you) they are more likely to want to eat it. 

Learning to cook and fend for themselves with different recipes helps them in lots of ways, with reading the recipes, mixing the ingredients, talking and asking questions as well it helps their comprehension of measurements, oven temperatures or just cooking on top of the stove.

* Have a lovely messy day –

fearlessly cooking something nice for yourself or a friend *

May God Bless You & Me today
