Spell of the Roses

Java Jamboree is taking a break!







Roses are red.Violets are blue.Sugar is sweet.And so are you! The roses in Thuan Hee's ancestral home in Sungai Bakap weren't exactly red; they were more pink and orange but what the heck - roses are a joy to look at! Roses are perennial flower shrub from the genus Rosa and the family rosaceae and that contains well over 100 species which come in a variety of colours. Most are native to Asia but wherever they are and whatever colour too, they are still a joy. I remember the ones in the Rose Park in Christchurch, in the South Island of New Zealand. They were in full bloom and a middle-age couple were lying together on a piece of cloth, enjoying a romantic moment in the paradise like atmosphere. Who wouldn't under the spell of the roses?
Traveling Break: Enjoy the moment!

Roses are allways seasonal. Good for every season.

Seasonal?We don't have them all the year round?

I wanted to say, the modern roses have flower all year round.

M m..mm.. I still don't understand. Maybe, it is the tropics here, hot and sunny all year round, and roses all year round!

In Europe all-seasons roses are new selection plants. They had flowers only in May. Now there are those that have flowers 2 times a year and even those that have flowers all summer. But it is not normal.

It is like the padi plants over here. they used be harvested once a year here but now you can harvest them twice a year.
