I'm right into my cutting garden. It's not a grandiose space but it's our space and brings joy beyond. Seen here is the latest pick. Or cut. Roses aren't the only flower we grow for cutting, it's just my favorite and honestly in my humble opinion, the rose photographs the best. How pretty is she? Now here's a true story. In my life's struggle, each year I vow to rid myself of the stress that maintaining the flowers entails. But each year I'm also here...seen below. Soaking in the beauty and love my flowers offer up. As with life, one must weigh the odds and realize that sometimes the harder way is the smarter way. This garden currently makes the cut since I'm in it cutting.
