"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall." -Eleanor Roosevelt
The roses are starting to bloom. I've never understood why people are so crazy about them. I mean sure they're pretty, but they don't really smell. I think that there's plenty of flowers that smell as good as they look and I would prefer those over a rose any day.
