Yellow Rose Like A Beam Of Light

Yellow roses got a bad reputation for nothing. According to the victorian language of flowers they stand for envy and dying relationships.
Looking at a yellow rose I can’t stop wondering how such a marvelous flower got it’s reputation.
Because, whenever I bring yellow roses home, I feel like the room is light up with a warm, cheerful energy.

Roses in Belgium

I have a good friend who lives in Brussels. Last week she visited this amazing international rose garden of Coloma with more than 3000 roses. She was so excited that she wanted to share this beauty with me. Here are some of her gorgeous pictures, I can only imagine the sensational smell in the garden 🙂

Thankful Thursday

Today’s thankful Thursday goes to good friends.

  • A good friend is measured by his loving heart and his comfy shoulders.
  • A loving heart that always love you no matter what, even if you argue or having a bad hair day, he / she will always love you.
  • Comfy shoulders to cry on and help you when you are in need.
  • Good friend is someone who is really interested in your answer when he /she ask you what’s up?
  • Good friend is there to give you a hand, but can also give you a push (to the right direction).
  • Good friend will always tell you the truth even if you don’t really want to hear it.

You might have met your good friend in kindergarten or along the way, you can be married to your good friend or just have met him / her in evening class.

No matter if it is a man or woman, good friends are rare commodity and I’m grateful for my good friends who are part of my life, and those who were once part of them.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you guys!

What are you grateful about today?

The Dancing Rose

When I saw these stunning roses I had to take some pictures.

This picture is called the dancing rose. The rose looks like it has a ballerina skirt and it is in the middle of a dance.

Memorial Rose Garden

Ramat Hanadiv is an enchanting memorial garden for the baron Edmond DE Rothschild. He loved Israel so much, he spend a lot of his money to build it and bring the latest agriculture and techniques to develop the country. When he died, his sons brought him to Israel to be buried in his beloved place, near Zichron Yaacov, a palce now called, ramat hanadiv, which means the generous one.

The memorial gardens sprawl across approximately seven hectares (17.5 acres), surrounding the Baron and Baroness Rothschild’s crypt.

Here’s a look at the rose garden
