I wonder if she fretted about it

By the side of my house, a little rose lives out her life's purpose absolutely unseen- till now!


  1. Did you talk to her? :)

    "'It isn't manners for us to begin, you know,' said the Rose, 'and I really was wondering when you'd speak! Said I to myself, "Her face has got SOME sense in it, though it's not a clever one!" Still, you're the right colour, and that goes a long way.'"

    - Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll

  2. Oh wow,beautiful contrast between colors. Nature is the ultimate artist!

  3. We inherited a couple of lovely roses when we bought our place - the deep reds had the most amazing scent; but the yellows & pinks didn't. Does this one?

    With regards

  4. How beautifully colored rose!
    I can almost smell the amazing scent. I love roses!

  5. There seems to be little correlation between colour and scent. I've had deep reds with deep heavy scents and some without, and there have been some pink and yellow ones that also have had the deep scent. What's funny is that some roses have a subtle scent, similar to raspberry, both Mom and I could smell that but my Father couldn't.

  6. She didn't apply perfume with a liberal hand- but it was there
