Believe it or not:
Freud's theory of the unconscious with respect to dream interpretation. Dreams, in Freud's view, were all forms of "wish-fulfillment" — attempts by the unconscious to resolve a conflict of some sort, whether something recent or something from the recesses of the past .

The Interpretation of Dreams is a book by psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. The first edition (in German, and bearing the title Die Traumdeutung) was published in November 1899 (post-dated as 1900 by the publisher). The book inaugurated the theory of Freudian dream analysis, which activity Freud famously described as "the royal road to the understanding of unconscious mental processes."

A Rose called "Just Joey";

Hybrid Tea Rose 1972 "Just Joey";
Very fragrant
Blooms repeatedly
Cuttings, softwood, semi hardwood and hardwood ;
responds well to pruning, flowers on new growth;
Very disease resistant;
Well worth having in the garden. One of my favourites.

She Gave Me A Rose; By Paul Laurence Dunbar

She gave a rose,
And I kissed it and pressed it.
I love her, she knows,
And my action confessed it.
She gave me a rose,
And I kissed it and pressed it.

Ah, how my heart glows,
Could I ever have guessed it?
It is fair to suppose
That I might have repressed it:
She gave me a rose,
And I kissed it and pressed it.

'T was a rhyme in life's prose
That uplifted and blest it.
Man's nature, who knows
Until love comes to test it?
She gave me a rose,
And I kissed it and pressed it.

Tomorrow I am on my way to New Zealand. I will be back in a week's time. Have a great week.

Have you seen a blue bunny....

Have you seen a blue bunny close,

With silvery ears and a pink spot on its nose?

Neither did I, anyway I wish you all a very happy Easter.
