Rumpled Roses

Rumpled Roses by Karen Gadient, 2014

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon—instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.

      Thank you! 🙂 You’ve a good eye: I was inspired by the cluster of rose petals that had fallen into the bottom of the glass jar we keep our cut roses in. David has a number of rose bushes in the yard and they’re blooming like crazy right now, despite the heat.
