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.

Hope you may like a poem today:

So here we are:  It is about a Rose.

The beauty of a Rose is beyond compare.

The petals so soft as they take in the air.

The colours so subtle as well as bright and strong.

The perfume out passes even our loveliest song.

The Rose has thorns on the stems and the stalks.

The thorns are protection from predators walks.

So touch a petal smell the Rose.

The perfume will bwonderful to your nose.

Find time, look at its beauty it is so timeless.

Be refreshed with it’s perfume, it’s softness it’s loveliness.

Maybe it’s time to put a Rose in your home,

to look at each day and not feel alone.

Here is a picture of a Pen/Ink Drawing of a Cat from one of my books.  It may encourage someone to look at their cat differently or to encourage a child to start Drawing.

This is what an Australian Cat may look like – have you seen one out Bush in the Outback of W.A.?

Verse from the Bible:

Exodus: Chapter 20 verse 12 – says – Honour your Father and your Mother.

I thought it would be a good idea to think about honouring our friends as well as our Parents.  Friends are very special so it is nice to think of them kindly and to appreciate having them in our life.

 * Hope you have a Lovely Day and be glad if you have a friend *

Poem about a Rose

Yellow & Red Flwrs

This is my latest Basket of Flowers ready for Church.

Not sure what the tree is called that the Yellow flowers are from but they do look very pretty.   The tree is taller than one of our sheds – so is not a shrub.

The Red Flowers are peeping over from my neighbours fence the whole arrangement I think looks very nice.

In the background are the large soft green leaves of the Poinciana tree.

I thought we would have a poem today:

Well you may not have a Rose to put in a vase for your home but you can always put another sort of flower indoors to look at and it will brighten up your room for a few days.  That would be a lovely thing to do.

I will sing to The LORD for He has been good to me.
