Today my rose bloomed out even further
and became even more beautiful.
It doesn't take much to thrill me I guess.
Under the full perigee moon last night this rose was beautiful.
Using rose petals is almost a lost art,
not only putting them in your own homemade potpourri
but things like
making beads from rose petals,
brewing rose tea, making rose jelly, etc.
Here is a great site with all kinds of great ideas
on what you can do with your roses.
Going back to the perigee moon....
did you see it last night?
It looked larger, in deed.
It was gorgeous!
Here is a good website on moon info.
Roses, moon phases...
....all these things and more intrigue me.
It is all about joy.
Do you take time out to enjoy the little things?
I believe that
is almost a lost art in itself,
like using rose petals.
Joy is different than happiness.
Try to make a point to slow down....
smell a flower or two,
look at the full moon every month,
and take a few moments to
increase the joy in your life.
Savor the Day!
