I love roses. All week, I have been watching with anticipation as 3 beautiful pink roses begin to unfurl in my flower bed. I have snapped photos in the rain, of the dark pink buds beginning to unfold. I have snapped photos with their creamy centres and pink-tinged petals. Last night, I snapped photos as the sun was setting, of a mature rose in bloom. Each layer reminds me of ruffles, like the full skirt of a ball gown on a princess. Corny, I know. But sometimes we need a little corny in our lives.
“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” – Emma Goldman
