We cut our roses back in December annually. It gives them a chance to go dormant and strengthen their roots and branches. Yesterday, we noticed our first rose opening. It is just as special as the last one that will bloom later on this year.
"A single rose can be my garden...a single friend, my world." Leo Buscaglia
"There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has to first forget all the roses that were ever painted."
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today." Dale Carnegie
