I think that everyone loves roses! I know that I do. I do have to admit that mine usually look pretty sad. No matter what I do the leaves always fall off and they are so bare looking! I do have one that is looking really pretty right now. When it first starts to bloom the bud is "YELLOW'" then they turn a pale "PINK." The final magical color they turn is a "CORAL Pink!" It reminds me of people and all of their "COLORFUL" personalities and how they bloom in each stage of their lives! I am "THANKFUL" for all the "COLORFUL PEOPLE" in my life!
