A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


The Beauty of June – 2 June 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Wild RosesDuring our walks in early June, Frank and I enjoy the beauty of the wild roses and their perfume that fills the air. That’s really taking a break to smell the roses!J

Also among the wildflowers making their annual appearance are the following: daisy, fleabane, hawkweed, birdsfoot trefoil, buttercup, yellow sweet clover, dame’s rocket, columbine, and wild geranium.
