Mother's Day has come and gone and my pink roses are still beautiful. For one week, I've been changing the water and adding a little powder. While doing so, I'm always caught off guard by the thorns that prick my fingers each time. Our youngest daughter, Ebony, gave me the roses and it was a conversation and wondering with her that led to this post. Why do roses have thorns? Do all roses have thorns? Ebont and I anxiously read Wonder #920 on Wonderopolis.org and learned so much.

I love roses and I especially love pink roses. The fragrant aroma fills our kitchen air with each turn of the fan. The petals have expanded to showcase a well rounded rose. Somehow a week hasn't changed the fact that the thorns are just as prickly on day seven as they were on day one. Roses and thorns: are they a match for life? Hmm
