Roses make me think of corsages on Mother's Day. As a child I remember wearing a little rose corsage made by my mother and grandmother. One single rose, a stem with three leaves, and a bit of ribbon. I remember sitting in church feeling so pretty and special with that little corsage on my shoulder.
Roses make me think of sweet summers as a child. Running around my grandmother's yard and stopping to stick my nose in the cascading rose bush by the side of her house.
Roses make me think of love.
