Off Topic: Stop And Smell The Roses

By Adam Pick on April 21, 2010

Several months after my surgery, I started gardening. While I continue to lack a knowledgeable green thumb, I really enjoy the process of working alongside Mother Nature. Even with all my gardening mishaps, I am super lucky to have a springtime rose bloom going on right now.

So, if you are interested in participating in the age-old cliche, I encourage you to… Stop and smell the roses. (Well, maybe not smell… But, I think you know what I mean.)

 

 

This yellow rose could be my favorite of the bunch.

 

This purple rose is incredibly bright and smells wonderful.

 

I really like the simplicity and symmetry of this white rose.

 

This peach rose smells fannnnnnnnnnnn-tastic.

 

Finally, I really liked this pink rose too.

Keep on tickin’ and smellin’!
Adam
