The Rose Family

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

actually, what bugs me the most is that, in all those 100 days I never thought to check! Figured such beauty had to be female! So Allan, if you would be so kind? You will need tweezers, magnifying glass, bright lights, patience and an understanding heart. But if it's a he, you can keep him.
Maybe you should switch to ladybugs...but you didn't hear that from me... ;) .......and she fly's away......
Thanks Allan, although I had been under the impression that she was spoken for due to our 100 days of attention and affection. But, as I have said before: ' A butterfly is a fly that flutters by'. I guess this news beats hearing about a truck windscreen or butterflies in some stomach...
