For me, the joys of growing roses is cutting them for bouquets all over my house. They have the most delicious fragrance that lasts for days.
Roses by the bedside…
English roses are David Austin’s, favorites of mine.
Deer standing in the middle of lavender, eating roses!
“I heartily accept the motto, — ’That government is best which governs least;’ and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe, — ’That government is best which governs not at all;’ and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have. […] I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government.” Thoreau
