in search of perfection


My appearances in our local florists must be very tiring for the staff - I come in, have a goosey, and sail out without buying anything. Thing is - I am in search of a perfect rose. Well, perfect anything really, but a perfect red rose eludes me so far. Orange and yellow roses are easier, and I saw a few which are as close to perfection as it gets. But red - no. Either shape is wrong, or the outer petals are damaged, or there's not enough of them (petals) for form a perfect swirl when it's opening...

I know it's not that fascinating, but I think we are all entitled to rambles now and then

Anyway - that's my latest rose. Still not perfect, but beautiful all the same

"Its smell and its colour are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it". What a beautiful quote. Thank you, I never knew this before - my Sherlock Holmes was read and remembered in Russian, I am not even sure I read the book
