Did you know that roses when consumed are both good for the cardiovascular system and for soothing sadness and grief? She is a healer in both medicinal and metaphysical realms.
She is a flower that knows her power so well that she keeps thorns as protection against anyone who grabs at her carelessly.
She is resilient and wild.
Many moons ago, I received a bouquet of roses whose fragrance
kept filling my room beyond their lifespan, and so I kept them and let them dry in my room.
One day on a whim, I added water to their vase, and can you believe brand new, fresh green stems grew from them? It's true.
