The Real Thing

After playing with woollen representations of this classic flower for the past few days, here's a real one to look at. 
I spent a couple of hours in the garden yesterday. I don't know what word to use to describe my activity. "Gardening" would imply that there's something of a collection of favoured plants. Well, there's this rose and my faithful Loraine Lee which always has a flower or two for me. Oh, and the grevilleas, but they're a bit overgrown at the moment. "Weeding" is more like it, but it doesn't seem a sufficient word for the magnitude of the challenge. Perhaps "digging" is a better word. Whatever word I use, there's plenty more to do. So I'd better get on with it.

This flower is beautiful. At least there is something lovely to look at while you work hard outside.
I am intrigued by the structure of roses. so much variety and yet they are so beautiful.

Yep--I guess that's the classic beauty, the rose!
