Rose


This is my contribution for the flowerfest A to Z for the letter R.


Rose is my favorite flower and this photo (logo for all my blogs) was shot in my sister's house.


A rose is a flowering shrub of the genus Rosa, and the flower of this shrub. There are more than a hundred species of wild roses, all from the northern hemisphere and mostly from temperate regions. The species form a group of generally prickly shrubs or climbers, and sometimes trailing plants, reaching 2–5 m tall, rarely reaching as high as 20 m by climbing over other plants.


The name originates from Latin rosa, borrowed through Oscan from colonial Greek in southern Italy: (Source:Wikipedia)
