gather...



Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.


The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.


Glorious birthday roses from my sweetheart.

We are off for a weekend of REST.

Happy Birthday dear friend! I hope you enjoy your needed rest, and I hope your birthday dreams come true.

I really liked that poem about the roses.

Hello Rene, my dear Miss Gracie,
happy belated-birthday and many happy returns(sorry didn't learn about this important event earlier - had so much ironing to do yesterday that had no time for blog hopping!) Love those roses your hubby gave you and your pics are soooo romantic. That pitcher is just adorable.
Hugs
Rita
