154/366: rose beauty

One of my favourite flowers is the rose, with its exquisite shape. Many have wonderful scents as well as beauty. However, no perfumes or talcum powders can ever quite recreate that aroma. Manufactured rose scent is not to my liking. I’ll just appreciate the original, genuine item in the garden.

To me, a rose at the bud stage, just before it opens, is perfection.

  1. Our daughter’s middle name is after my favourite flower also. Ashley Rose. We told her when she was young, that her sweet mouth reminded me of a rosebud. She actually just reminded me of that story not long ago.
