Thanks everyone!The poem is lovely, Patty :)
Great capture Sharon! Thanks for sharing the poem Patty!
Beautiful rose and picture! I simply thought one of Shakespeare´s poem would go with it and I am therefore sharing it. GreetingsSONNET 54 (By William Shakespeare)O, how much more doth beauty beauteous seemBy that sweet ornament which truth doth give.The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deemFor that sweet odour which doth in it live.The canker-blooms have full as deep a dyeAs the perfumed tincture of the roses,Hang on such thorns and play as wantonlyWhen summer's breath their masked buds discloses:But, for their virtue only is their show,They live unwoo'd and unrespected fade,Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so;Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made:And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth,When that shall fade, my verse distills your truth.
Excellent! I am glad you found both of these missions.
Apple, I did as you suggested and added the mission Midwestern Gardens. I also found the Great Lakes Monitoring mission and added that, too. Thanks!
