We spent our afternoon and early evening today in the Oakland Rose Garden, sitting quietly on a bench, before strolling around and smelling everything...

Such a lovely place this garden be...

Though strange too this place be a bit for me now, for whenever I am here, I am reminded of what be gone - so many friends be missing...For almost all the trees I'd love since I was young, (here's a picture of me as a little livings with a few of those trees in the background) a number of years ago, they cut them all down...and I still greatly miss them...

Though of course still so beautiful the roses be...

But still...a sadness...

I think still of you friends. 

You were seen. You were loved.

You are missed.
