Blooming of a Rose

No more be grieved at that which thou hast done:
Roses have thorns, and silver fountains mud;
Clouds and eclipses stain both moon and sun,
And loathsome canker lives in sweetest bud.
All men make faults, and even I in this,
Authorizing thy trespass with compare,
Myself corrupting, salving thy amiss,
Excusing thy sins more than thy sins are;
For to thy sensual fault I bring in sense–
Thy adverse party is thy advocate–
And ‘gainst myself a lawful plea commence:
Such civil war is in my love and hate
That I an accessary needs must be
To that sweet thief which sourly robs from me.

– William Shakespeare, Sonnet 35

They are mini roses that I bought because they we were 99p or something in a sale, they’re still alive and well which is always a bonus. I’d like to point out that the above photos are not of the same rose but were taken on the same day, if you need some form of consolation then the flowers and buds are from the same plant. The photos were taken a week or two ago.
