STOP and Smell the Roses




Step 1: Pick some flowers.
Step 2: Smell them [up real close].
Step 3: Put them in some quirky vases around the place.
Today I am begging you to stop and smell the roses.
Life is too short to pass by such pretty things.

  7. hi Simone..
    Your roses are EXQUISITE!
    How I WOULD love to be smelling roses..
    However, today has been gray and SNOWY..
    not even a bud on the trees,
    nor any green shoots poking through the snow..
    In fact, I did stop to smell Roses..
    at the grocery store when I went out for milk..
    and they had no smell at all!!!
    Am so ready for Spring..
    warmest hugs..
    laughing smiles..
    Loui♥

  28. Oh so pretty! I especially love that second picture with the roses grasped in a bunch by a sweet hand....reminds me of my kidlets picking these sweet little blue flowers (and dandilions before they seed) from the back yard and bringing them to me in that same sweet grasp! Hope your week is off to a fantastic start! :>

  31. I promise to do just that as soon as my rose bush blooms. In the meantime I will admire the tiny daffodils that popped up in my yard!

  32. the second picture is beautiful.
    these are lovely.

  33. Yes. I walk around the block.
    I spy the beauties in the neighborhood.
    I lean over, and breathe in, comparing notes of one to another. The lighter are usually more generous in scent than the darker. The Double Delights are the boldest and brightest.
    Still, I find that I need to touch and feel the soft silk velvet petals.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  42. there's nothing better than the scent of roses...i can't wait to have rose bushes in my garden...one day:) i always loved my nan's because they had rose bushes. luckily the house across the road has bushes down it's fence and i walk beside them coming back from dropping my kids at the school bus. i remember spring when i walked to the railway station, just taking in the freshness and smells and buzzing. and i just love that about photography, it makes you stop and look, and think!

  43. I love these little cups with beautiful flowers !
