october roses

A rose is a rose is a rose.

Gertrude Stein


  1. Beautifull roses...I had to stop by...
    "Don 't hurry. Don't worry. You're only here for a short visit. So don't forget to stop and smell the roses."
    Walter Hagen

  2. I'm glad you did...and brought one of my favourite quotes, an absolute "classic"! Lovely!!
    I have one for you too...

    "Won't you come into the garden?
    I would like my roses to see you."
    Richard Brinsley Sheridon


  3. That one is very very nice !

    "A single rose can be my garden...a single friend, my world."
    Leo F. Buscaglia, (1924-1998),

  4. ...And that one is very sweet!!

    "The sweetest flower that blows,
    I give you as we part.
    For you it is a Rose,
    For me it is my heart."

    Frederick Peterson

  5. Roses

    You love the roses - so do I. I wish
    The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
    From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
    Then all the valley would be pink and white
    And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
    As feathers, smelling sweet, and it would be
    Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

    George Eliot

    Beautiful October´s Roses, Dear São !

    Fátima Clérigo

  6. Beautiful poem from George Eliot, by the way, pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, an English novelist, journalist and translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She used a male pen name to ensure her work would be published! Outstanding poetic choice, Fátima! Thank you!
    Kisses, cx

  7. Women no longer have to use male pseudonyms to see their work published and recognised.
    Beautiful shots .

  8. That is right...we have come a long way!!!
    Thank you for the compliment, Submarino.
