Powerful Quote #169 : Petals of Children

Petals of Children

Flowers love gentle breeze, so as the children. But, neither the flowers nor the little children know to demand such a love. It’s we who need to understand their soul is as soft as the petals and decide whether to be a gentle breeze of love or a shattering storm of anger.

Story : 55 Fiction : Sidewalk Flowers

Side Walk flowerA gentle breeze brought some more flowers, floating in the air, slowly landed on the sidewalks. He carefully avoided stepping on them. The old dry flowers seemed questioning, interrupted his steps.

He knew it, they might look for her, miss her alongside him. He continued walking slowly, with a walking stick instead of her hand.

Story : Gift Some Love

Gift some Love

“Hey, this will look awesome for you” he showed that lovely Knee Length Pink frock with flowers to her.

“Look what I have selected for you!” she presented to him that cute Pants with braces in excitement.

The twins have chosen dresses for each other from that large pile of donated clothes. They both are happy after a long time, as their parents are no more to gift a new dress for their birthday.

Their smiles worth a billion thanks to some unknown kind human being.  

Moral: No matter how big or small, nothing is more valuable than that one random act of kindness & love which bring those beautiful smiles in others.

Know : 100s of Rose Species (Gallery)

rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa (The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa), within the family Rosaceae. There are over 100 species. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Species, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and often are fragrant. Rose plants range in size from compact, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 7 meters in height. Different species hybridize easily, and this has been used in the development of the wide range of garden roses.

The Gallery here features native Roses (Rosa flowers not the hybrid ones, which we will post later)

The genus Rosa is subdivided into four subgenera:

  • Hulthemia (formerly Simplicifoliae, meaning “with single leaves”) containing one or two species from southwest AsiaR. persica and R. berberifolia (syn. R. persica var. berberifolia) which are the only roses without compound leaves or stipules.
  • Hesperrhodos (from the Greek for “western rose”) has two species, both from southwestern North America. These are R. minutifolia and R. stellata.
  • Platyrhodon (from the Greek for “flaky rose”, referring to flaky bark) with one species from east Asia, R. roxburghii.
  • Rosa (the type subgenus) containing all the other roses. This subgenus is subdivided into 11 sections.
    • Banksianae – white and yellow roses from China
    • Bracteatae – three species, two from China and one from India
    • Caninae – pink and white species from AsiaEurope and North Africa

    • Laevigatae – a single white species from China
