A Tale of Two Roses
There is a rose plant in our back yard that cannot be thwarted. We have shown it no love and the only attention it ever gets is not good. Yet, year after year it surprises us with a few amazing blooms. I have been in a rush or having a @&*y day and looked up (while taking out the trash, no less) to spot a perfect flower in my face. Such was the case the other night after the rain. Yesterday I clipped the rose and brought it in and today it opened up nicely. I wouldn't usually say I am a "pink rose girl" but these lovelies have livened things up around here.
