Roses and ratings ~

The Climbing Eden rose in my garden is in full bloom. It is a bit late this year, it must have harboring its strength because now that it is in full flower it is spectacular.

Each flower is a joy - large, full petaled and the most wonderful soft pink color.

Of course they are perfect for bouquets, and very long lasting as cut flowers.

Just another wonderful, wonderful, rose!

I have decided that the quote below is perfect for my garden. Instead of worrying about my weeds I am taking a new approach. Ancient Egyptians said that: 

"A beautiful thing is never perfect".

Accepting that although my garden will never be completely weed free, or totally manicured, it can still be beautiful (at least in my eyes) makes me happy. That, and a few beautiful roses!

Maybe perfection is a bit overrated.

Thank you for visiting.


  1. I love the quote and the roses are so pretty. I love seeing the flowers in your garden. One day I hope to have one.

  2. Oh how lovely to see your roses....and the quote is something we gardeners need to be reminded of regularly!

  3. Adrienne, perfect or not, it is all in the eyes of the beholder. AND, I behold your garden as perfectly beautiful. Wish I was so lucky..Happy Sunday..Judy

  4. Perfect saying for your perfect garden.
