    “…fragile blossoms in the garden of humanity.” Lovely words and sentiment, David. And I love the calligraphy and message too. My very best wishes to you for a year ahead of sweet fragrance and gentle breezes.

      thanks to the kindness & support
      of yourself & others
      i’m feeling more like
      fresh blossoms
      than fresh compost, dear Jet!
      wishing you gentle rains
      and warm sunshine moments ๐Ÿ™‚

    You reminded me of the sign on my bulletin board: “Plant melons, get melons. Plant beans, get beans.” A Chinese proverb.
    Here’s a question about advertisers on your site. What’s with the hairy guy shaving his belly? Lovely roses and message. . . . then, the hairy guy?

      yes, we’re all watering seeds, dear susan!
      i’m sure we’ll do our best
      to water the more wholesome ones.
      i realize there are ads, as i use the free version of wordpress,
      but i have no say about which ads are placed.
      rest assured, that i
      am not the hairy guy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Absolutely beautiful. I adore those roses. Your post reminds me of a saying I’ve used off and on for years, “Bloom where you’re planted.” Because life is precious, we must watch what we feed our mind, body, and soul. Wishing you and yours a very blessed New Year, David! ๐Ÿ˜€

      thank you for kindly sharing this wise saying, Linda!
      as more blooms beckon to be reckognized
      i may need to use it for a future post.
      i’m happy it’s been wet, quenching the dryness here,
      so yes
      already a blessing…
      & to you & yours ๐Ÿ™‚

      thank you for your gardener’s wisdom, dear Sue!
      knowing that you’re doing your best to blossom

      and let my pedals down ๐Ÿ™‚
