Roses Reign

~~~~~~~~~~~

Princess of the perennial border

ruffled satin, sweet, and pure

pretty perfumed elegance

A royal profile – yet demure

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thorns protect her heart’s virtue

lest a careless hand be nigh

They will pierce the haphazard

for just a prince may stay her side

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Many others have sought this lady

But chastity doth guard her soul

Providence has blessed each petal

that she’d be kept for Him alone.

  1. You asked about my favourite flower, roses are so beautiful, nothing better than sticking your nose in one! Arrgh the scent! But my all time favourite flower has to be the humble daisy! She is so brave, she will grow anywhere she can, in nooks and crannies, on dirt paths, drive ways, the sides of motorways, she looks so fragile yet she is strong and never complains! That’s my favourite flower, she reminds me even though I am a women with all the things that’s go with that! I am strong and can over come anything!

    1. You are so right about daisies being resilient. Giving birth to each of my three children really increased my admiration for all women ( and for my husband who has enabled me to be a stay-at-home mom). Parenthood isn’t for the fainthearted, but it does fill us with joy. πŸ˜‰

  3. My tied-for-favourite flowers are roses and lilies. The wild roses will soon be blooming here – and the ‘tame’ ones aren’t far behind. I love the fragrant ones… A lovely thought that the thorns are protection from harm!

  4. Wonderful words, beautiful photos. I love, love, love roses. I can almost smell the perfume of the first photo (it’s a Double Delight yes?)

    1. Lyn, I don’t know the names of most of my roses. The first one blooms twice, but the second rose is the one that has the most beautiful fragrance (like Avon’s “Roses, Roses”).

  5. Beautiful Wendy! I like most flowers, roses, orchids, petunias, snapdragons… But I really, really love wildflowers, and I really, really love cornflowers! So pretty and vibrant. πŸ˜€

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
