Every Rose…

You know? I noticed our rose bush today and decided to try out a new lens on the thing. There are no roses blooming on it at this point, however, I noticed something intrigueing.

The thorns on this thing compare to baby shark teeth! And when I tried to move the vine for a better angle on it, I got bit!

I wonder if it is so the deer won’t eat them and we can enjoy them a little longer? Do women want roses because they know the guys bleed when they pick them?

Well that will give me something to Google this evening I suppose. Plant protection mechanisms. Cures for Rose Bites, etc.

Peace, Love, and Every Rose Has Its Thorn,

    Thorns are good for many things. However around here the deer think that roses including the stems and thorns are like the cherry on top of their dessert!

    Bob, I liked your pictures! So have you ever been bitten by baby shark teeth? Or has some woman made you bleed? Just curious. Wendy

    Lovely pictures. Do you have any personal experience with sharks teeth?

    Thank you Wendy! – Well – I have a puca shell necklace with a shark tooth on it that stabbed me once. And I’ve seen black tip sharks while snorkling but got out quickly. But no other experiences w/sharks. As for women none have made me ‘bleed’ (thank goodness) I try to be nice :c)
