Humility, chastity and sweetness are the characteristics of June’s special flower – the rose.
But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.
An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it makes a better soup.
I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.
There was something rather blousy about roses in full bloom, something shallow and raucous, like women with untidy hair.
Daphne du Maurier,
