With the virus and the unrest in this country, sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses. . .But in this quaint little town of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, it's hard not to notice the beautiful gardens. . .
I try to walk a couple of miles each morning, which takes me pretty much around the historic downtown. . .All along the way I can smell flowers. . .Almost every house has them. . .Along the side roads, there's honeysuckle and clover. . .So nice after smelling all the chemicals that are being sprayed close to our farm. . .
My favorite flowers will always be peonies and roses. . .When I was growing up, Grandmother had garden beds of both. . .Every time I see them, my happiness soars. . .I often sit and savor each breath I take. . .and enjoy the coolness of the early morning. . .before a busy day begins. . .
