Funny that the most quotable quote about names, mentions a rose!
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. William Shakespeare
For those of you who have encouraged me to “name” the garden, this is for you. Actually, some of you have more than encouraged me …. in some cases insisted the garden have a proper name—you know who you are! 😁 Grin. Well, Mr. G calls the garden, T’s Garden and I’m sure he will continue to do so. But, for the rest, it is now officially BLOOM THYME COTTAGE GARDEN. I know, a stretch, I have always referred to what’s going on in the garden as Bloom Thyme. So bring on the plaque — the garden has a name and it even has a welcome mat…
Such great work by my friend, Lauren Holt of Bear Home Goods. Check her out!
TENDING THE GARDEN…
Whether planting, weeding, cutting blooms or just walking with coffee in hand, my garden brings me immense joy — it is where I hear God’s voice the loudest, it’s where I dream, it’s where I “figure things out”, it’s where the need in me to “tend things” is realized. As my flowers bloom so do I! I don’t think that it is an accident that Genesis 2 is filled with a garden…
Gardeners, we are in great company … “God almighty first planted a garden.” -Francis Bacon. And, that garden had a name, The Garden of Eden.
Now the LORD God planted a garden in the east. …God took the Man and set him in the Garden of Eden to work the ground and keep it in order. Genesis 2
I hope you have a special place where you are able to bloom. If you do… maybe you need to name it!
BLOOM THYME THIS WEEK…
Many of the roses are just now getting started. It is nice to see them return.

What a lovely garden name and welcome mat you chose, Teresa.
I was delighted to see photos of ‘Olivia Rose Austin’ and ‘At Last’ in your garden. I planted both of these cultivars in my garden for the first time this spring. If they look as prettty here as they do in your garden, I will be very happy!
