Undeniably 2020 was a troubled year of great suffering in the world. I imagine as in any year we all saw some measure of sorrow—longings, pain, disappointments. My wish for you is that moment to moment, inside the garden and out, this new year shall bring into your life many reasons for gratitude.
Om. Peace, Peace, Peace!
And I send those wishes right back, Susie. Have a peaceful and fulfilled 2021!
Thank you Cathy! I’m going to try to make it a great year.
Same to you as we approach this new year with great hope for a return to some normalcy.
Thanks Judy. I’m with you!
Best New Year’s wishes to you. It can only get better…and seed catalogs are on their way to give us something to look forward to. 🙂
Thanks Judy! The thought of seed catalogs does bring hope!
Beautiful rose, Susie. Happy New Year.
Thanks Amy. The memory of that rose dates back to my childhood. Thought I’d bring it forward into the new year.
Your rose is a beauty. Wishing you the same Susie. xx
Thank you Cathy!
Peace be with you and yours, Susie!
Gratefully accepted. Thank you Kris!
Happy New Year to you too! That’s a lovely rose, it looks very velvety in the picture.
Thanks Alicia. That rose is one my mother and grandmother grew when I was little. This piece came from my mother’s first cousin, who shared many passalongs. I was hoping you might know its name. I don’t really grow roses–just keep this one for the memory.
Happy New Year! That first rose is so beautiful–the photo took my breath away with its beauty as a opened your blog post!
Thanks Beth. That rose goes back to my early childhood (and probably long before).
Happy New Year, and thank you for your kind words….may this be a peaceful year.
Thank you Gerrie.
Best wishes to you too, Susie, hope 2021 will bring us the silver lining we’re waiting for.
