We see it so rarely, and certainly it is unexpected in one's own garden.
But the other day, I cut the perfect rose.
I couldn't quite capture the color. It has more of a purple tone than these pictures.
Hot house roses almost always look perfect, but they lack fragrance.
Can a rose without fragrance be considered perfect? I don't think so.
This one is almost cloyingly sweet. And therefore? It is perfect.
