20210523 Rose

At the corner of my house where the alley meets the road there is a rose. It was already there when we bought the house. I don't know what kind of rose it is. I have no knowledge of roses other than that I can recognise that it is a rose. The flowers are big and pink and there are plenty of thorns. The best thing about the rose is its smell. The smell is overwhelming. In June when the flowers bloom it is as if we're living in a perfumery. It may be an ugly house, but in June it is the best smelling house of the entire city.
