Remember this quote by Shakespeare?
"What's in a name?
That which we call rose
By any other name
Would smell as sweet"
~ Since 1888 The City of Portland (located in Oregon) has been known as: The City of Roses ~
Although it's supposedly "Wordless" Wednesday, I couldn't help think about this beautiful quote by the Bard. Since I live in the City of Roses, I like my roses and this bud was taken in my backyard a few weeks ago. It's now bloomed, and has lived a very good life in a vase in my family room. What a beautiful flower too! And the smell . . . whatever you want to call it, it would have smelled as sweet!
