    I have always loved flowers. I know that Shakespeare had many allusions to roses in his more dramatic writings.

    There are so many flowers that have interesting meanings throughout history (in different countries).

    In the beautiful town where I grew up and Buy Amoxil reside in, Ravenswood, West Virginia, there are many flowers in bloom at various times of the year: lilacs, irises, daffodils, old-fashioned wild roses, honeysuckle, and other flowers I don’t know the names of.

    Isn’t it strange that Shakespeare has always been considered English, but he wrote plays about people in Italy. In the time of Shakespeare there were no modern forms of transportation.

    Did Shakespeare sail to Italy in a boat or did he travel by horse or did he walk there?

    How did Shakespeare write plays about Italy? How did he travel to Italy to write two of his most famous plays: “Two Gentleman of Verona” and “Romeo and Juliet”. Did he meet someone on a road who told him a story about these people or things in the far off land of Italy (south of Amoxil online usa England and France)?

    Or was he mystical like many of the great teachers of the School of Athens, Greece (who were equally male and female).

    A have read a few of the writings of William Shakespeare. He lived and worked (but not too much) many centuries ago.

    One should not work too much.

    Rest.

    Certain geographical areas of Planet Earth are fertile because of perfect or mild weather. Places like India, the Mediterranean, or the Avodart online usa American South.

    Flowers always grow more after a nice storm.

    April showers bring may flowers……
