"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.
