The Rose

"But he that does not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose."  Anne Bronte

I've been musing lately over the life we've led and how grateful I am that we grasped the rose by the thorns.   This voluptuously beautiful floribunda rose graces the entrance to our house and assaults us with perfume the moment the door is opened.

Outrageously beautiful. I can almost smell it from here!

It reminds me of our Rosa Chinensis mutabilis, and the smell of roses here in Melbourne at this time of the year. Stunning. And yours is in a pot.

I like your approach to life, thorns and all.

And I crave the rose's perfume!
