Thanks to my new friend over at The Redneck Rosarian I learned that June is National Rose Month. So in honor this month…
The Little Rose Tree by Rachel Field
Every rose on the little tree
Is making a different face at me!
Some look surprised when I pass by,
And others droop – but they are shy.
These two whose heads together press
Tell secrets I could never guess.
Some have their heads thrown back to sing,
And all the buds are listening.
I wonder if the gardener knows,
Or if he calls each just a rose?
Have a blessed evening!
