Pop Go The Roses ...

"We try acting grown up but as a rule
We're all little children fresh from school ...
Keep them handy, flowers and candy
Roses and lollipops and lollipops and roses."

                                      ~ "Lollipops and Roses"
                                                                  ~composed by Tony Velona
                                                                       ~ recorded by Jack Jones
                                                                                             ~ 1962 

Yellow roses in the Allentown Rose Gardens bloom under
a bright rainbow Whirlypop lollipop in Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania in an Alice In Wonderland type way
on a summer day in this whimsical abstract inspired by the song
"Lollipops and Roses." Because aren't we all kids at heart?

Never My Love ...

"What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life
depends on you ...
Never my love ..."
                        "Never My Love,"
                               ~ The Association, 1967

The life of the rosebud is intertwined
with that of the rose in full bloom, which colors it with life
on a June day at 
the Malcolm W. Gross Memorial Rose Gardens,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.
