In the great books of India, an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence, which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the questions that excercise us.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I can't help but celebrate India when including a picture of Ganesh, god of wisdom. The top image was inspired by my Climbing Pinkie, she's shown here with Souvenir de la Malmaison, and Heritage. Maman Cochet must be the rose in front of Ganesh- (I think). Divine tea. Lady Elsie May photo taken at the ARS rose garden in Louisianna (yes, I was there!). Climbing Pinkie in a bud vase.
