Thankful for the roses

On Wednesday of this past week, before we dropped our son off at The Mission Training Center. we went across the street to walk around the LDS Temple grounds.  The Pink roses were absolutely amazing.  I have never seen anything like those pink roses all in bloom before.  And since pink roses are my favorite flowers, I just had to get lots of pictures. They just went on and on, and it smelled so wonderfully fragrant in the air.



I was thankful for those roses, as any distractions were appreciated, for what we were about to do!  And that was to say good-bye for two years.

Good luck to your son! Those roses are beautiful and I think they are the same ones I have. They are called Simplicity and they are hedge roses by Jackson & Perkins. Beautiful!

Oh my goodness! The roses are just stunning! They are my absolutely favorite flower of all time and these pink ones are just stunning! I could just imagine the wonderful smell in the air from these beautiful gems. You have done a wonderful job in raising/training up your child in the way he should go. May your two years apart be blessed and may the time fly by swiftly for your mothers heart. Be blessed.
