Greetings From Spring Valley -Postcard Friendship Friday #352
Greetings dear Friends. This beautiful postcard of white roses seemed perfect for today's blog. Did you know there is a certain language presented by flowers? Books have been written about this. According to the fascinating book Tussie Mussies, by Geraldine Adamich Laufer, in Victorian times, white roses carried the meaning of "unity, silence, keep my secret, I am worthy of you, love, respect and beauty."
I adore roses--my garden is filled with all colors and types of them. June is when the roses begin to bloom. I long for the lovely aroma of those lovely flowers.
Here in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon, Spring has sprung with a vengeance! Last week almost overnight, daffodils and purple crocus burst from the ground and all the fruit trees were suddenly covered with masses of pink and white blossoms.
This morning the sun is peering through the clouds and hope fills the air. It is going to be a beautiful day. There's something about this time of year which melts the heart with joy. This will be my third Spring without the love of my life. He liked to work outside this time of year--I miss the camaraderie we shared working in the yard together. Sometimes when I am outside doing the work which must be done, I fancy my Beloved is there beside me.
And so, Greetings from my own dear Spring Valley to you, dear ones. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
