My favorite flower has always been the Rose ever since I planted my first rosebush, the "Peace Rose", when I was very young. Ever since then, I always await the bloom of my "First Rose of Spring". This year's Rose is called "Nicole". As you can see it is pale pink in color with a darker pink edging, and very fragrant.
Just remember in the winter Far beneath the bitter snows Lies the seed that with the sun's love In the spring becomes the rose.
