The Rose is a Rose

Roses are their best in this season here.

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But now the theory goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose,
You, of course, are a rose
But were always a rose.
- Robert Frost


  1. I wish I could grow roses as lovely as yours.

  2. Beautiful Roses! My roses will still take around 15-20 days to bloom. What are the temperatures like in Bangalore these days?

  3. Those are some beautiful roses. It's interesting that the apples, and pears and others are somehow in the rose family.

  4. I may have said before...roses are new to me.
    Have some now and I'm in love.
    Always like when the rose is still tight and hasen't open yet. Pretty pretty.

  5. Darla, thanks. I too struggle with them!
    GT, Bangalore never becomes too hot or too cold. It is 18 deg Celsius now.
    Catherine, Thanks. The poem is interesting, isn't it.
    Patsy, That is my favourite too, when the rose is still tight.

  6. I love your roses, Lotusleaf, how beautiful they are!!!!
