Rose Seduction

Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton


torn rose petals fall
in a pink confetti rain
scent of seduction

  8. What an unusual rose - and I agree, leave them attached to the bush to drop their petals at will.

  11. Beautiful rose shot, and I am not much for cut flowers either, I like to look at them on the bush and watch them slowly change over time. Some people just grow them to cut.
