“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” – William Shakespeare.
Roses are quite common, but for me, this single bloom is quite special.
We have one surviving rose bush – it is a healthy climbing plant that came from my late Mum. We don’t often get to see flowers on it, I don’t remember the last time we did. Usually the possums feast on them, so to see this single red rose is quite special, like a gift, from my Mum.
Thanks Mum, miss you.
