A Rose is a Rose
My "live-in gardener" and I love roses.
We can't resist adding a new one to the garden from time to time.
Each of the roses today is from the garden.
Right now there is a bouquet with roses in several places in the house.
And when the garden is finished I will buy a rose at the market for the bud vase.
They just make my heart sing with JOY.
"Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose."
"Go lovely Rose,
Tell her that wastes her Time and me,
That now she knows,
When I resemble her to thee,
How sweet and fair she seems to be."
"As sense-bludgeoning as a rose."
Sometimes a single rose will enchant,
while other times a full bouquet delights.
There were roses in my wedding bouquet.
There are roses on teacups.
There are roses in the fabric on my chairs and pillows.
There are roses on my wall.
Most of all, there are roses in my garden.
"There is simply the rose;
it is perfect in every moment of its existence."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do you love roses?
Do you bring them into your home?
All roses shown are from my garden, which is still blooming in October.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
