This area of this web site used to belong to my weekly ezine, the RoseBouquet, but it has moved to it's own blog sub-domain, and I'm now changing this area to be full of articles and pages on friendship. Since I like the imagary of my friends as various flowers and roses in a lovely garden, this is my RoseBouquet Place.

You will find over time, many articles on friendship and mentoring all indexed here.

There will be sections for those Needing Friends, and those wanting advice on Maintaining Friendships.

The novel, Ruthe's Secret Roses, is about friendship, intimacy with God, prayer, spiritual and physical make-overs, idealistic romance, and roses so this blog/ezine is about those too. The book compares friends to rare and treasurered roses, so the focus is on friendship with a strong rose motif.
