why are so many beguiled by roses?
Is it their wonderful structural shape? Is it their glorious leaf colour? Is it their magnificent spiny form over the long winter months? Is it their ability to sit comfortably with other plants? Is it their inclination to tear your hands, face and clothing as you pass by? Is it their scent? Really? Many have scent; many do not. Is it their demand for fungicides and insecticides?
Out of flower roses are the most ugly things in the garden. They are positively aggressive, treacherous .(never want a friend with its characteristics ) even dangerous......ever fallen into one and tried to sit down afterwards? They have no place in a small or average size garden.
So...let's get a petition going to ban roses .....an anagram is "sores" and how much more apt is that? .....and make our lives sooooooooo much better
