Roses. No matter what age or stage, where you live or work- I think of you as my Roses. Do I have favorites? Well yes, I do, I’ll tell you later about those… here’s the thing I like best about blogging I get to meet folks from all around the world. It’s like travelling- maybe better. That’s also what I love about writing my newsletter too. It’s a grand collage of all types who have one thing in common, they’re amazing, talented and creative- some may just be starting out or dreaming like little rosebuds- waiting to bloom. Or, they just begun their creative journeys full of hopes and plans.. Some just need the Marketing Tips or Encouragement or even what the big industry folks are saying. Others know what they’re doing, they just need a fresh perspective. The latest newsletter is about ‘Posting in Difficult Times’.
Then, there’s others who want to download a PDF- like the current newsletter which included – ‘Create Spring Gift Guides Now.’ Why? Because in difficult times- we have a chance to pause and do something behind the scenes while being respectful and careful during these trying time.
I’ve been doing these newsletters for well over a year now- it gives me a chance to work with a smaller group. I’m thankful for All who’ve signed up- it feels like giving out a a few roses when I send it and when I hear from any of the subscribers- well it’s the best bouquet of Love to hear their thoughts.

Now, about my favorites? Well, the New Dawn Roses on our picket fence are heirloom roses given to me by one of our daughters- it’s an early and prolific pale pink rose. Then again, our whole fence is a bit exuberant – they’re Showoff’s really.
I love the ones I saw in Santa New Mexico several years ago- tall, stately and bright. That image of a climbing rose over a shop door is a dream.
My Mimi said- ‘Rosebuds are sweet, yet there may be nothing more beautiful than a full blown rose.’ She was a florist so we paid attention. Then there’s this- ahem… since Rosebuds tend to speak to children or young folks, a Full Blown Rose, well we older folks fall into that category, right? At every age and stage, Roses are beautiful! That’s good to know!
That crazy collage with Roses? I took that on Royal Street in New Orleans. It was meant to be a throwaway photo, though it’s mesmerizing and I just couldn’t let it go, especially with those roses. And today, it’s reminding me of you, unique talented you.
Love y’all, Brenda
