Day 109

"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.


  1. That's a nice picture. I agree with you on roses though - there are others I would rather grow too.

  2. I don't like the smell of roses, either, but I do like your photo.
