Rose, Kakdah's treasure

Roses do influence Kakdah's mood. I can safely conclude that after years living with Kakdah and plants. The rose opened up yesterday displaying layers of pinkish petals. I always find it difficult to describe fragrance or scents even though we had been keeping roses for years.

It seems roses had been around for millions of years and the first mention of them and their appearance in artistic motifs was in Asia some 3500 years ago. The fragrance of roses was valued by the Romans and they used roses to scent rooms and after bathing. Cleopatra supposedly filled a room over a foot deep with rose petals while wooing Marc Anthony. The two main roses used during the era were the Damask and Gallica types

Rose blooming,  coincides with Kakdah's almost perfect mood.

Rose, dense and beautiful.


Kakdah and blooming rose has something in common......
that I will not elaborate further. haha.

  5. I think Cleopatra had the right idea, for where would civilization be without the rose?

    Does any other flower, and there are many contenders, have such a universal appeal? There's some kind of magic in the rose.

  6. There's something in "rose" that many parents choose ROSE as the suitable name for their daughter.....
