Lovely written and true... as much as we are aware that the 'rose' we have is beautiful, that much those 'thorns' hurt...
Thanks, Petra. A bit of a pity party moment... but all okay now. xx
What a lovely photo, and what a poignant one with the message behind it for you.
Thank you very much, Odd Socks and Lollipops.
The clarity on that rose is wonderful
I must admit that I was very happy with the outcome! :)

Nice parallel. I'm reminded, "Every rose has it's thorn..."Oxox
