But now they are here, and they are making a spectacular appearance. They are everywhere. I see them in private gardens when I take a walk or bike ride. While driving the car I spot them in traffic islands proudly blooming among hideous and dirty street signs. Sturdy but delicate, roses are climbing rock walls, clinging to arches along the river promenade, blooming profusely in shades of sunset, blush, scarlet and lemon. Pure and fresh and simply spreading joy.
This beautiful pale pink rose bush in our garden was a gift to our daughter a few years ago and it seems to be very happy to be growing here!
Take time to smell the roses today.
