Take Time to Smell the Roses

pink roses

I love roses. I don’t believe there is a color that is not exquisite in a rose. Today I took a vacation day to handle some things I could not handle on the week end and I was blessed with a truly beautiful day to run errands in.

There was a billing error on a medical procedure I had taken so I took it and my insurance card into the office and they found the error and are now rebilling my insurance. I was truly grateful for the kindness and courtesy of the staff there and am sure everything will be resolved.

Two blocks from there I had to pull over and take time to smell the roses. The fragrance was heavenly and I was standing on a sidewalk taking advantage of the beauty cascading over the fence. Awww. ..


If you like mosaics (I call them collages), check out Mosaic Mondays and have a glorious week!

What a fancy collage - really lovely! I'm never happy with the ones I make using Pisca. I tried Smilebox but didn't think it was any better. I still can't believe that PhotoShop Elements doesn't have a way to make collages on my MacBook Pro.

I like roses too. I've two articles at Triond teaching people how to fold papar roses.

I hope your biling issue will be resolved soon. Not to worry, sleep well, sis!

Porch Days, I cannot tell you how many programs I downloaded til I found this one. I am so sorry it does not work for you. Thanks for the visit!

Chan I remember your article with step by step instructions to make beautiful life like roses. You sure put a lot of time into it.

Love the color, and if I may add, roses are the one of the most beautiful yet resilient flower there are. :-)

Your collage is beautiful Judy and I love the color of this rose. The roses in my front yard don't have much scent but our local park has a rose garden, the scent is amazing.

Roses do have a very calming effect.

Judy, I noticed that too, that some are more fragrant than others. But the rose garden probably has so many that you cannot help but smell them?

Have a blessed week end. Do you get tomorrow off?

Rachel July 8, 2010 at 1:04 PM  

Oh my - how absolutely lovely! And I am just imagining how beautiful the scent is too!

Judy Sheldon-Walker July 8, 2010 at 8:22 PM  

Rachel, heavenly! Do you know how many rose petals it takes to make rose oil? Wow! It's a lot.

Thanks for the visit.
