The Splendor of the Rose

The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.Therese of Lisieux

  1. So true! The rose is a lovely and fragrant flower. But the little oxalis flower, for instance, is also a beauty. All in perspective. Love your quotes. Soothing words always.

  2. Wow, that’s great! I’m always amazed at the intense interest in roses. I like them fine, but I just don’t have that passion for them so many gardeners have. And I prefer the aroma of sweet peas and freesias and lilac flowers. From the outside looking in at rose gardeners, it seems like they are always spraying and protecting. We visited a rose garden in Berkeley California once, and I found it so disappointing – rows of rose bushes with dry sandy soil in between. Not lush or gorgeous at all.
