a rose is a rose is a rose




Beauty in the City can be hard to come by: we planted two rose bushes in front of our co-op Brownstone only to have them stolen a few days afterwards (a writer who lives in the building wrote about it here). Smarter on the second go-round, we chained the plants to the window guards. They've grown well and are over six feet tall now. I can smell the blooms from ten week away. Wonderful.
