A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

What’s in a name?  That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. ~ William Shakespeare

This rose is in my little rose garden next to our back patio.  The kids gave me this rose-bush for a Mother’s Day present a few years ago.  It has the loveliest colors, and I thought it would be nice to start off your Tuesday with some loveliness.

I have been trying my hand at photography once again.  It’s been a long time since I’ve taken pictures like this just for fun.  I was shooting with Travel Man’s Canon G12.  Lots of fun to be learning again!

Do you have any hobbies you’ve gotten away from?  what’s keeping you from getting back to them?



  1. For “getting back” to photography, you sure are awesome at it! Beautiful photo of an incredible rose. So lovely.

  2. Oops, forgot to answer your question. What hobbies have I gotten away from? Only ALL of them! I’ve not been playing piano (and have now lost all I learned just a few years ago). I’ve not been sewing or crafting in any way. I’ve not even been reading like I used to. Just kind of a BLAH summer. Hope to be more active once the weather cools a bit.

    • Thanks for stopping by Lisa. I know the heat can be so draining! We’re just having our first week of 100 degree weather here in California, and we are all whining about it. Stay cool.
