Wild Rose, Small Pink Rambling (Rosa multiflora)
(Wild Rose, Small Pink Rambling - 07) When we "take the time to smell the roses", we also should be able to appreciate the wonder of God's creation. If we don't blind ourselves to the truths before us, we can smell the perfume; we can see the buds; we can see the unfolding of the 5 petals and the numerous stamens balled-up around the pistil; and we can see the magnificence of the the fully developed flowers. And, if we do not blind ourselves to these truths, then we should also recognize the pain and suffering in this world and do everything possible to put an end to it.
