Purple Roses - Wise Words Wednesdays

A single rose can be my garden...
a single friend, my world.
..... Leo Buscaglia

Lavender roses carry the message of enchantment and love at first sight.

But he that dares not grasp the thorn
should never crave the rose.
- Anne Bronte

"Purple Roses”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ on Dec 7th, 2011.

Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone
and more fragile than a rose.
- Turkish proverb

A thorn defends the rose,
harming only those who would steal the blossom.
- Chinese proverb

But friendship is the breathing rose,
with sweets in every fold.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes


The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns;
the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.
- Kahlil Gibran

  11. This colour is so sweet. will make such a pretty cut flowers.

  12. You title says purple but WongChingWah said pink oops Bananaz now confused. Looks pinky to me haha. Lovely roses, purple and pink both from the same family.

  13. Now, I look at the colour again, is it pink or purple? But it is purplish pink or pinkish purple.

    So, the rods and cones are not playing tricks when sending signals to the brain. Bananaz and Wong same status - very normal ;>)

  14. Landbohaven says, "Beautiful Roses." Thanks!

  15. Each one of those roses is different and beautiful in it's own way just like the quotes that accompany them. As always your blog is a delight, Autumn Belle especially now when the plants outside my door are leafless and dormant.

  16. So beautiful, Autumn Belle. I wish I could grow more Roses!

  17. Pretty blooms & wise words go hand in hand :D Lovely photos & I think they are purplish pinks! :D

  18. Those roses looks like the ones set on the icing cake.
    Are these from your garden?

  19. You captured well the beauty of the purple rose...such a lovely sight!

  20. These roses are from Putrajaya Floria 2011. I have a lavender colour rose plant but mine only bears one flower per stalk. My miniatures, yellow, red, pink and tri-colours are blooming but the purple one is not blooming now.
