~ I can be pretty too! ~

Bend low to smell the roses
Don’t just waft on by
There is beauty to be seen and smelt
At every level you may spy
Above easily seen the biggest blooms
Seeking warmth of accolade and sun
They show their beauty brilliantly
Perfection noted as you run
But hidden deep in the foliage
Are sweeter blooms by far
Sheltered they last longer
They’re the ones for my bedside jar

~ I can be pretty too! ~

Artist's Description

Another little rhyme inspired by fellow bubbler Gerry’s work
He found the hidden beauty in his rose bush here
It reminded me of when I was a girl and how I would pick the flowers low in the bush so that I wasn’t yelled at for picking flowers and then I would put them in a Vegemite Jar beside my mother’s bed for her to find that evening :o) I still wonder if she ever knew it was me to leave them … she probably thought it my brother.

Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses every now and then and life wont seem so harsh!

Keep Happy! :o)
