My daily rose – Today's rose is red

The Chinese seem to have been the first to grow roses in the garden. Confucius describes as early as the year 500 B.C. the roses in the gardens of the imperial palace. He had more or less than 600 books in his library about roses and how they are cared for. Large-scale cultivation of the rose as a decorative plant began only after 1900 and now over 35,000 varieties are known.

“If you know how to make people happy with a single look, then you are a rose! If you know how to hurt people with a single touch, then you’re a thorn!”― Mehmet Murat ildan
