Dear Friend,   One of my great joys is to take photographs of flowers, especially the roses.  This rose is one of my favourites.   As yet I do not have one of these rosebushes of my own, so I take a short drive to the garden of my friend and photograph the blooms as they come out.   It is so wonderful and I feel so blessed.   Margaretha

Below is the rose from the bush my friends struck for me.  It is doing well, and I love its roses.  But there is something about the roses at my friends.  I still go there to photograph them.

These are all the same roses.   Last year my friends promised to strike a plant for me.  I can't wait to see if they have done so, but need to catch them at home. I bask in the beauty of this rose and am happy to share its beauty with you.

"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer."   Psalm 19:14.

Through the things of nature, and the deepest and tenderest earthly ties that human hearts can know,  He has sought to reveal Himself to us.  Yet these but imperfectly represent His love.  Steps to Christ p2.

It was a lovely surprise to see the spider's web in the early morning sun.    

These were all from last season.  I have yet to photograph any new ones.  Am waiting for the buds to open.   It is so exciting see God's beauty.
