For the Love of Love …


 

 

 For the Love of Love  &  For All the Ones You Hold so Dear …

And why the reds ?

Because it’s the colour of the  ♥ and a symbol of warmth and feeling.

 

♥ For the Love of Love ♥

♥ For the Love of Love ♥

 

And For the Heart of the Rose …

 

For the ♥ of the Rose ...

For the ♥ of the Rose …

 

Love Makes Life so Sweet even without a box of chocolates.

 

sweet thoughts with empty boxes ...

sweet thoughts with empty boxes …

 

Make it special with beautiful thoughts and some rose petals.

 

Truths of Life & Beautiful Thoughts ...

Truths of Life & Beautiful Thoughts …

 

♥ For the Love of Love ♥

♥ For the Love of Love ♥

 

Just a quick post to Wish you All a Happy Sunday & Valentine’s Day

 

still a lot of catching up to do … but sending some roses to you makes me feel better  ♥ ♥ ♥

 

♥ love ♥ flowers ♥ sentiments ♥

♥ love  ♥  flowers  ♥  sentiments  …  ♥

 

“Love sought is good,but given unsought is better … ”  Shakespeare …

Thank you very much, dear Doda, love is represented in all the creatures on the planet, each in its own way gives us his love, an animal with a purring cat or dog barking, a bird chirping, etc. a flower gives us his beautiful fragrance, so everyone gives his love, in the way that can prove it.🐕🙅🏻🕊🐈🌹
