The Pleasure of the Rose

I love white roses and it's so easy to go to the deli at the corner and get a bunch and separate them into small vases. The one above went into a little handpainted vase I bought at Anthropologie on sale for $7.99.
A rose can hang on the wall

or stand on a table

or go on a desk. During the week they open up

and are different every day. Also they look different in the day in natural light

and at nighttime.

Light goes through the pale petals, like thin paper, which can take on a creamy blush. The unfolding buds are a joy to look at all week long.

And that's the pleasure of the rose.
