21 year old rose


This rose was bought on the birth of my second son 21 years ago. It has survived 3 house moves and is stronger and brighter than ever.

Not a huge lover of flower photos, but with such a royal history I really like this one.

Quite right too, the single reason for this photo is its history.

i like daisies (as they are friendlier flowers), but this is a beauty. and the sentimental attachment? priceless.

Daisies are friendlier than roses, less thorny! But I tend this rose carefully.

Speaking of the English rose....

Here is a spot I try to read every single day. This woman is hilarious and irreverent. Her latest jag is regarding your Queen coming to Canada. I wonder what an Englishman will think of this week's account.

Once again, your photos are beautiful.

Poignant as only a rose can be. A rose is a rose is a rose...(repeat 21 times).
