My daily rose – Take time to smell the rose

I love roses. Flowers and thorns, joy and pain … If it were possible I would photograph them all after today’s rain. They look fresh, they are beautiful and … happy. They needed a little rain after the heat wave that dried their petals  …

“Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.” – Anonymous

  1. Great quote, Eliana. Roses have a very special scent. I have been making ice-cream this summer a couple of times per week, and the best batch | made was flavoured with the petals of an old English rose growing in my garden. It tasted so good that it seemed to say when I tasted it, not only “Never offer me any other dessert”, but even, “Never offer me any other food”! 😀
