The rose was never some cheesy pastime, it was the entity of romance, a romanticism within reach of us mortals.

You may not know, how many names does a rose have?

In the book "The Rose of Time", naming plants seems to be a poetic thing:

Moss Rose, Damascus Rose, Shishi Scarlet Rose, Beauty Isis, Night Meditation, Lady Prevos, Golden Dream...

And Shakespeare wrote in "Romeo and Juliet": " What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."


Regarding the appearance of roses, the hard and sharp thorns on the stems, the soft and deep fragrance, and the delicate and curly petals are beautiful and fragrant. Let human beings spend their ultimate imagination about romance on a rose.


1.Man who wrote poems about roses

Roses are red, violets are blue
sugar is sweet and so are you
——Szymborska, "The Untaken Journey to the Himalayas"


Someone said your name out loud beside me yesterday
it's for me
Like a rose thrown through an open window
——Szymborska, "I Lived So Lonely"


In my barren land 
you are the final rose.
- Pablo Neruda, "Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair"


Maybe there are five thousand roses in the world and you the same flower, 
but only you are my unique rose.
-Antonio de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


A rose blooming in the depths of the universe

In the depths of the universe, there is a rose silently blooming, it is called the Rosette Nebula.


The appearance of the rose is sculpted by the stellar wind and radiation emitted by the star cluster, and the petal part is gestating countless hot and young stars.


The nebula is rich in hydrogen gas, and it sometimes turns into a deep and charming blue, a solemn and elegant yellow, and a mysterious and enchanting green.
