Flowers for cutting

This is why I grow roses. For this moment. We have had days of roses. The two that I banished from the terrace - the ailing Pat Austin and Abraham Darby, sprang to life on the roof, just to show me. Their replacements are in bud, but not in bloom yet.

The scent of the wide open pink is fruity, heady...

After cutting them I put them in very hot water for ten minutes, to help them last.

It is a hard heart that does not love a rose. They melt me.

(Bottles are from Dead Horse Bay, the glass is from Bowery Kitchen Supply at the Chelsea Market.)
