Rose gardens

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.~ Ruth Stout

God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown.
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said “To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.
Prune ye my vines and fig trees,
With care my flowers tend,
But keep the pathway open
Your home is at the end.

Robert Frost (God’s Garden)

A gardener is like a prophet looking out on a barren land and saying, ‘I see corn on that hill, and beans beneath the grove, and lavender in the field, and over there some roses by the brick wall.’ Don’t you think that’s what a good friend should be like? A truly good friend is one who can look at our bare lives and see the fruit of what will one day come from deep inside us.~ Craig Froman (Of Secrets, Spiders & and the End of the World)

Be soft, don’t let the world make you hard. Be gentle, don’t let the people make you difficult. Be kind, don’t let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless~ Nurudeen Ushawu

We visited Madrid in may 2019 and stayed there was 5 days. During the visit I spent some quality time in the rose gardens. Yes Madrid has 2 rose gardens and have more than 4000 roses.. Both are well maintained and can be reached using public transport. The public transport is extremely efficient at least in my opinion.

Travel Challenge – Day 10

I was nominated by our fellow blogger Derrick Knight to post one favourite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures and 10 nominations. Instead of nominating one person I would like to invite everyone of you to participate.

Be kind and post at least one of your favourite travel photo. Please link to me so I know you have participated. If you are not interested, no problem.

Nowhere in the rules does it say you can’t guess where the photo was taken.

Stay safe, stay healthy and be kind.
