May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.

Thanks Yoko!

Isn't that a great quote! It's the truth too! Hope it wasn't posted already. Went through them but didn't see it. Jewelry doesn't thrill me like roses, or any other flower, plant, grass etc! I know there are others here also who feel the same! One day I will figure out how to post the pictures. I know the ones on my computer are too large, just have to take the time to resize some to a bit smaller!
Love to you..and to all! kiss2


Thank you yoko and Sandy.

You are right Sandy, a necklace of roses is far superior to one made of stones, or whatever is in fashion.


As a lovesick nightingale, you flew among the owls.
Then came the scent of the rosegarden
and you flew off to meet the Rose.


This rose is in my garden and I thought that I had lost it, but I kept watering it and feeding it and now it has a nice tall branch with a bud. I am so happy, since it is one of my favourite roses, that has been with me for a long time.

Love, Inda

Dear Sandy, I am also very happy that your beautiful rose is on Givnology.

The rose is a flower of love.
The world has acclaimed it for
centuries. Pink roses are for love
hopeful and expectant. White roses
are for love dead or forsaken,
but the red roses, ah the red roses
are for love triumphant.


Roses red and violets blew,
And all the sweetest flowres
that in the forrest grew.

- Quotes Edmund Spenser

Nice of you to bring back the roses post.
They are all starting to bloom in my garden,
somewhat late this year due to the cold spring that we had.

...From th moment you came into the manifest world,
a ladder was offered for your escape.
From mineral substance you became a living plant,
and later a roving animal. Is this a secret?
Afterwards, as a human being,
you developed reason, consciousness, faith,
See how the body has risen from the dust like a rose...

“I will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.”

― Rumi

Roses are still blooming, and they will do so until the frost.

“Pull the thorn of existence out of the heart! Fast!
For when you do, you will see thousands of rose gardens in yourself.”

― Rumi

“When the rose is gone and the garden faded
you will no longer hear the nightingale's song.
The Beloved is all; the lover just a veil.
The Beloved is living; the lover a dead thing.
If love withholds its strengthening care,
the lover is left like a bird without care,
the lover is left like a bird without wings.
How will I be awake and aware
if the light of the Beloved is absent?
Love wills that this Word be brought forth.”

― Rumi, Teachings of Rumi

What Was Said to the Rose

What was said to the rose that made it open
was said to me here in my chest.

What was told the Cypress that made it strong
and straight, what was

whispered the jasmine so it is what it is, whatever made
sugarcane sweet, whatever

was said to the inhabitants of the town of Chigil in
Turkestan that makes them

so handsome, whatever lets the pomegranate flower blush
like a human face, that is

being said to me now. I blush. Whatever put eloquence in
language, that's happening here.

The great warehouse doors open; I fill with gratitude,
chewing a piece of sugarcane,

in love with the one to whom every that belongs!

Poem by Jalaluddin Rumi

Nice to see you back Gisele.




-I said: How long will you drag my soul around the world?

He said: Wherever I drag you, come quickly. Say nothing.


I said: While I say nothing, do you want me

to burn? Are you saying: Come in and say nothing?


He smiled like a rose and said: Come in and see.

This fire is jasmine, green leaves and roses. Say nothing.


The fire became roses and spoke. It told me:

Except for our beloved’s love and kindness, say nothing-

“You're beautiful, but you're empty...One couldn't die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass, since she's the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she's the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she's my rose.”

Antoine de Saint-Exuperi from "The Little Prince."

My roses are all beginning to bloom, and they are full of buds.

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her...”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
