This rose tree in our community is growing tall and blooming luscious roses. I wonder how tall it would get if left alone. But knowing the gardeners, this rose tree will get sheared soon only leaving its thorns. I understand pruning is beneficial for more blossoms, but the process seems brutal.

“The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.”

– Kahlil Gibran

Cee, hope your week is going better and staying well as we enter mid August now! Thanks for hosting. 🙂

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
