And a thousand fragrant posies. - Christopher Marlowe

Gorgeous roses... I do love and totally agree with the quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - I love the book 'The Little Prince'... I bought that for Shauna and will make sure that I read it to her... it is a brilliant book... take care

Oh how I miss roses. I planted dozens of them at our previous house but it turns out that deer eat them so NONE here. So sad and sometimes I think I could be convinced to move for that reason alone I miss them so much.

They are beauties!
