FOTD – Red Rose

A flower that doesn’t need an introduction.

A rose is an argument. It proclaims the triumph of beauty over brutality, of gentleness over violence, of the ephemeral over the lasting, and of the universal over the particular. The same rose bursts into bloom on the North Cape and in the Sahara desert.

– Alain Meilland


Flower of the day

    I suspect M’sieur Meilland is much more a poet or aesthetist than a gardener…. i’ve known some pretty brutal and vicious rose bushes in my day! 😉
