I am sitting here on a sunny October day and thinking how soon the color and greenery we have enjoyed all summer and fall will soon be gone. These are some photos I posted on the blog in the past few months and are just a sampling of the gorgeous flowers here in Stillwaters Estates.
Below are some additional photos that I haven’t posted on the blog until now. Stop and smell the roses as they say – Enjoy!
Quote of the Week:
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. – Dale Carnegie
