"I'd rather have roses on my table, than diamonds on my neck."
~ Emma Goldman ~
What would we do without the beauty of roses? They have tremendous emotional appeal. Their fragrance and blossoms bring much delight to us all. I took a picture of this cluster of roses a few days ago. They are in a shrub bed beside the back steps. I pass by them daily, enjoying their beauty. I realized that if I wanted to record their beauty, I needed to take a picture before I forgot and their blossoms had faded. This rose bush was given to me many years ago by my friend, Nancy. I never walk by without thinking of her.

It is an incredibly lovely rose. The pink edges and white and cream centers make for a pleasing combination. Then there's the shape of the petal itself... unique.ReplyDelete
I would truly be sad to have a life without roses. Your rose is beautiful. Can't wait to share the roses in my garden with you.ReplyDelete
Roses are, indeed, quite beautiful. I think my favorites are pink roses as well as apricot. Of course, I love ALL color roses. SusanReplyDelete
Very pretty! Nothing is blooming here now. Too, too hot. :/ Have a beautiful day. TammyReplyDelete
What a beautiful pink rose! And I love that quote. I agree, I'll take roses rather than diamonds, anyday!ReplyDelete
