June, the month of roses.

Whence comes this mist of sweet perfume of fragrant blooming roses
That fills the air at early dawn and after daylight closes,
When through the day the song bird sings and in the night reposes?
Tis June, the fairest month of all, bright June, the month of roses.
- Elva May Root

It's a new month, not just a new day. 

If that does not make sense, kindly refer to my previous post. May I warn you though that it is a melancholic post, so read with caution...

I am very grateful to the comments I received on that post. The comments gave me hope and inspiration. Like the roses with their pretty red blooms in June, as mentioned in the verses, I feel like the fire in me is starting to have a warmer and bigger glow. And I write this post with a smile.

I am sharing this rose with Viridian's Sunday Stamps and I'm happy that the theme today is anything you wish. It's perfect timing, I can post anything I want -- which is this rose for the start of June, the month of roses.

And since she's asking for suggestions for future themes, I would like to suggest Disney characters, UNESCO WHS, universities, and musical instruments. Pardon me though Viridian, if one or more of these themes I cam up with has/have been rolled out before.



  1. The wild roses have just appeared in the hedgerows here, so I'm looking forward to seeing their horticultural cousins.

  2. Being this is Finland, I am surprised it is not a scratch-n-sniff rose stamp :D they do make some great stamps in Finland!

  3. Beautiful stamps.
    I also read your last post. I wanted to answer you, but I didn't know how to say it without sounding like a topical sentence: it's never late! I'm approaching 40, and I still don't know what I want to become when I grow up... :) Sometimes that gives me the feeling that I'm wasting time, but sometimes I just feel: "This is my life". And in personal (I mean, not professional) matters, it runs very well. I think it's necessary consider what we're doing, but it doesn't mean we becoming sad for all the things we aren't doing...

    I don't know if you can understand my poor English, but anyway... Thanks for sharing!

  4. It's too early for our roses yet, but the buds look promising. Beautiful stamps.

  5. I didn't know this was the month of roses. I think roses are an ideal subject for stamps.

    I think anything you wish is the most interesting theme.

  6. I am glad that things are looking rosier for you!

  7. Beautiful stamps, I'm pleased you are feeling more positive.

  8. June is going to be a beautiful month. Our roses are blooming now. Thank you for sharing - yesterday and today.

  9. Melancholia aside, may you always have roses.

  10. Roses are probably my favourites flowers, especially if they are scented.

  11. What a beautiful set of roses in its full blown.
