Pink Saturday: A rose is a rose

I have enjoyed Patricia’s Pink Saturday posts for some time now and am finally joining in the fun over at the Pink Saturday. There was talk of a light freeze in our area last night, so I thought it wise to cut these pink rosebuds.  They do open beautifully in water.  These were picked from a very special rosebush  that was moved from my husband’s parents house in 2005 after their passing.  When the bush was transplanted in our garden it split into two parts.   Just as in life, John and Lona (that is what we named the rose bushes) still look wonderful together.

“A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring” ~William Carlos, American Poet
