Roses Are Red

Roses make me think of corsages on Mother's Day. As a child I remember wearing a little rose corsage made by my mother and grandmother. One single rose, a stem with three leaves, and a bit of ribbon. I remember sitting in church feeling so pretty and special with that little corsage on my shoulder.
Roses make me think of sweet summers as a child. Running around my grandmother's yard and stopping to stick my nose in the cascading rose bush by the side of her house.
Roses make me think of love.


  1. these are really lovely, when that bush is in full bloom should be a gorgeous thing.

    I remember the corsages also for Mother's Day, my Dad would buy my Mom a huge orchid corsage. Oh such lovely memories.

  2. What beautiful roses, Kathy. I love that full-blown last one and the fitting quotation!
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. What a sweet post. I love the thought of you wearing the homemade with love corsage in church :)

  4. What lovely images, evoking such sweet memories. I had to smile at your precious corsage story. Were you wearing gloves and black-patent-leather shoes? That's what I remember from my childhood church-going days.

  5. What beautiful photos and I love how you've used them to record the memories.

  6. Beautiful roses, beautiful memories, and a beautiful quote by one of my favorite authors.

  7. isn't it wonderful how a flower can connect us to treasured memories of our loved ones? i grow zinnias just because i remember as a little girl picking them in my granny's garden. thank you dear cathy for the warm fuzzies you gave me today.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
