Music on Mondays–I never promised you a rose garden

The Music Chronicles of Russel Ray

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

Many decades ago, around 1968, my wise old grandmother had me dig out a huge plot of grass and create a rose garden. I was forever down on roses. Still am. If it had been my idea….

As I was looking for a good subject for today’s Music on Mondays post, I realized that I never got around to doing a Friday Flower Fiesta post last week.

So why don’t we combine this week’s Music on Mondays and with last week’s forgotten Friday Flower Fiesta and let you listen to Lynn Anderson’s “Rose Garden” while looking at some pictures of the beautiful roses that were blooming this past month, all made into Photographic Art.

Happy End-of-March day!

    Love the light bulb and hand held fan pictures. Very different and cool. You are the first person I can ever recall quoting a Lynn Anderson song in a blog. There has to be a dozen roses or some other prize for that. 1968 sure could have used a rose garden with all that occurred that year. All the best, BTG

    I vaguely remember her performance of this song at the Livestock show in Mercedes, Tx. It was during the song’s height of popularity way back in the year I don’t recall… She wasn’t kidding about the rose garden with all the livestock around!
