Fridays with Manny



As the saying goes: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. However, most people will agree that a rose is definitely a beautiful flower. There was a reason why William Shakespeare wrote in The Two Noble Kinsmen: “Of all flowers me thinks a rose is best”. I found this quote in 52 Inspiring Rose Quotes. When my wife and I visited Portland, Oregon last year, we had an opportunity to explore a number of beautiful roses in the squares around the neighborhood. Portland happens to be called the City of Roses.

Roses are growing everywhere, including around our home, and I often capture their beauty with my camera. On our Sunday afternoon walk with Max to the Rose Garden in Golden Gate Park, we saw people relaxing laying on the grass, sitting on a bench and conversing with a friend or taking photos. It is where beautiful people blend with the beautiful nature.

Now is the best time to visit the garden when the flowers are blooming, and to take your own photos of beautiful roses and smell their fragrance. Meanwhile, I am sharing with you some beautiful moments in people’s lives blended with the natural beauty.

If you love flowers, do not miss “Bouquets to Art 2023” show in de Young museum from June 5th to June 11th, 2023. I recommend to buy tickets in advance.

Enjoy and Share!
