Pictures of Roses

Caked with mud.
Can't tell his ass from a hole in the ground.
Can't tell his ass from his elbow.
Can't see the forest for the trees.
Can't see the wood for the trees.
Cares melt when you kneel in the garden.
A carrot on a stick.
The cat's meow.
Caught between a rock and a hard place.


Onions treat seven ailments.
Only the strong survive. 
On middle ground. 
Open up a can of worms. 
Our neck of the woods. 
Out with the old, in with the new.

Pin a rose on your nose.
A place in the sun. 
Plain as water.
Plant kindness and gather love. 
Play a harp before a cow.
Pull it up by the roots.


Put off the scent. 
Put that in your pipe and smoke it. 
Putting it in a nutshell. 
Putting the cart before the horse.
Put to bed with a shovel.

And he repents in thorns that
sleeps in beds of roses. 


As you walk down the fairway of life
you must smell the roses, for you only
 get to play one round.


At every step the child should be allowed to
meet the real experience of life; the thorns
should never be plucked from his roses.

God gave us memory so that we might
have roses in December. 


I'd rather have roses on my table than
diamonds on my neck. 


Marriage is like life - it is a field of battle,
not a bed of roses.


We may pass violets looking for roses. We may
pass contentment looking for victory.

Won't you come into the garden? I would like my
roses to see you.
