tZ's RoseTime

"These roses under my window make no reference to former roses or to better ones; they are for what they are; they exist with God to-day. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence."
Before a rose-bud has burst, its whole life acts; in the full-blown flower there is no more; in the leafless root there is no less. Its nature is satisfied, and it satisfies nature, in all moments alike.
~ EMERSON on
SELF-RELIANCE ~

What a beautiful rose. The heaviness of the bloom and buds is very evident in your photo. It's like pregnancy and birth, don't you think -- when the bud swells to the point that it bursts into flower?
